This is one of those books that every parent and PreK-K teacher should have in their libraries. It not only teaches kids about animals and colors, it introduces them to very important sight words. It shows them how to describe animals and allows them to learn in an easy and fun way.

Adorable rhythmic/musical read along/ sing slong. My little bother loves this book and we've read it on the kindle alot. It reminds me alot of the Hungry Caterpillar or If you give a mouse a cookie, in the repetitious way. Highly recommended for the younger kiddos.

You just can't go wrong with this book when it comes to story time. This book I think may even be older than me but kids still love it. It is a timeless classic!

My favorite for first time readers. A boy I practically raised read this to me. It was his first book he ever read. My son got this as a gift at my baby shower. This book holds a special place in my heart.

I love Eric Carle books, and read so many of them when i was younger, as did my siblings. The illustrations are just as great. They're so unique and you can immediately tell that it's an Eric Carle book.

Loved reading this book as a child. I would sometimes turn it into a sort of song. Perfect to read to young children or to have them start reading to you.
