About Sleepy Happy Capy Cuddles by Mike Allegra

Kids will delight in this great read-aloud story about a quirky animal, the capybara, that floofs and brings peace to the rainforest.

The rainforest roars with squeaks and squawks, alive with a rumpus of animal noises. Can any creature get a moment of rest and calm amidst the chaos? Not until the arrival of the largest, friendliest rodent around who calls for something new: cuddles!

But, the animals wonder, can cuddles de-harden a shell? Don’t they look weird? Will that closeness feel uncomfortable? Capy has gentle answers to all these questions, helping every cuddler feel safe and happy. Curl up with this book and learn that no matter how you do it, everyone can appreciate–and benefit from–a cuddle.
