I loved this book. The illustrations are beautiful, and help to grab the readers attention. I thought the book truly teaches children the different ways of life for animals. In other words, it teaches children that everyone and everything is different but it doesn't make it wrong. The rhyming is very easy for children to grasp onto. I love how the author also displays the love between a mother and her child. When I read this book as a child, I used to feel upset because I didn't want to leave my mother's side. In a way, this book is somewhat emotional for me.
