KIRKUS REVIEW

Walsh repeats her winning formula, this time asking children about animal’s homes. “Do crocodiles live in shells?” Toddlers will love shouting out each “NO.” Guessing what animal would make the answer a “yes” is an added game and relatively easy for four of the five questions (mole’s burrow being the hard one). Readers will be kept on their toes by the last question, always a “yes”—“Do fleas live in fur?” The observant will spot the answer to the title question on the title page. Bright colors, limited text, subjects that fill the page and just enough detail to identify each animal are just right for toddlers, who will delight in the incongruousness of seeing a goat in a bird’s nest and a guinea pig hanging from a spider’s web. Perfect for story hours, classroom reads or just a rambunctious reading with a single lap-sitter, this is sure to elicit laughs and loud answers from any audience. (Picture book. 2-5)
