KIRKUS REVIEW

Animals of all shapes, sizes, and colors are ready for little readers to discover.

This bright and colorful board book is filled to the brim with creatures and critters. Each double-page spread features an animal habitat on one page and several animals that live there on the corresponding page. Little ones are encouraged to spot bears, turtles, pigs, and other animals in their surroundings, making for an intense and enjoyable interactive experience. The habitats range from under the sea to in the barnyard and in the deepest jungles. When depicted in its home, each animal makes its own unique noise, which is one more thing for readers to imitate and enjoy. (Artistic license is at work here; while no one will question the birds saying “tweet,” it’s a bit of a stretch to assert that a jellyfish says “blooop.”) The crazy colors and rounded illustrations catch the eyes, and occasional die-cuts give the pages textures and additional dimensions that draw readers in as well.

An eye-popping exploration of the world of animals. (Board book. 1-3)
