From Booklist

Ages 2-4. Birds fly around the spreads, and gazelles gambol across the pages. Descriptions of other animals are given: "Antelopes are elegant, elephants are enormous." One question appears throughout the text: "How loud is a lion?" The book's simple text will have direct appeal to little kids, but the real star here is Beaton's delightful collage art made of felt decorated with beads and braid. Simply shaped, but bold and inventive, the appealing animals often resemble the stuffed animals children love; many kids will want to reach out and touch the pages. Use this at toddler story hours, and when the text question appears for the final time, ask the little ones for their best roar--just like the one that rattles the pages. Ilene Cooper
