I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Kudos to Jaime Kim for such whimsical and beautiful illustrations. All the animal parents with their offspring depicted in the book are lovely, bringing life and completing the phrases of rhyme perfectly.

The story is sweet while informative. Colorful illustrations promise to hold a little one’s attention while listening to a beautiful story that provides a sense of belonging, being part of something even bigger. A wonderful meaning behind the words. I loved this book and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

I gave it:

Five shining stars!
