This book has very simple words. It begins “Let’s be animals, you and me. We can baaa and bark and hop. We can move and clippity-clop.” Children are running around in a field with a sheep, dog, duck, horse, and calf. From that point on a single animal is featured on each page. There is a cat, dog, rabbit, sheep, pigs, horse, goose, most, goat, and hen.
The text tries to have rhythm and some pages work fairly well. Toddlers will love pretending to be the animals. Parents should encourage the child to interact with the text.
The illustrations are done with pen and watercolor and feature simple cartoon figures. The text is written on the double page fully-colored spreads.
The book is identified as “for ages two and up.” Personally I think it would be for ages one to three.
