Editorial Reviews

* "Captivating...the poems...manage to convey a great deal of factual information in addition to bits of whimsy...This engaging work would be very effective as a read-aloud and will be even more effective when paired with nonfiction titles. Highly Recommended."--Library Media Connection, starred review
"A vibrant, general book about animals for the very young...Children will enjoy paging through and identifying the multitude of brilliantly hued animals that make up this visual zoo."--Booklist
"There are many delights here for sparking up a story time or simply rejoicing in the varied creatures, from lizards to giraffes."--Horn Book Magazine
"Will be appreciated by animal lovers and science fans alike."--Kirkus Reviews
"Ehlert's mixed-media collages tend more toward the true animal hues found in nature than some of her previous books. The layers of handmade paper--brightly colored and often richly textured--that form each critter, crisply arranged on a white background, lend a sense of up-close immediacy...Budding naturalists and animal lovers of a broad range will surely be amused."--Publishers Weekly
