“The layout, painterly artwork, and repeated litany of the title line work beautifully together throughout. … The idea is an original way to introduce the youngest children to different kinds of animals, and preschoolers will enjoy the interaction of guessing each animal before the turn of the page.” —Kirkus Reviews (U.S.)
