KIRKUS REVIEW

An imaginative son and his father romp through a myriad of incarnations of animal pairs in the five minutes before bedtime. Rhinos and giraffes, snails and chameleons, hyenas and parrots—the father/son pairs describe what they do together: “My daddy is an elephant, / he is so very strong. / But when he has to lift a tree, / he’s glad that I’m along.” Save for one awkward phrasing, the rhymes and rhythms are spot-on. Prap’s bold textured colors and black borders are her trademark, and this latest does not disappoint. Colorful patterned borders hem in each father and son, while the animals fill all the rest of the available space. Youngsters will have no difficulty identifying the animals, though some may question why the male kangaroos have pouches. Regardless, this is a loving tribute to the special relationship between a father and his son. (Picture book. 3-6)
