Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (4 ):
The repetitive structure makes it a perfect read-aloud with very young children, who delight in guessing what animal comes next. First published in 1967, this book is beloved for its brightly colored art by Eric Carle and simple, rhyming text by Bill Martin Jr. The lines are easy to memorize, encouraging even toddlers to "read" along. Pre-readers can practice identifying color and animal words. And the simple structure provides plenty of opportunities for parents and children to talk about the animals and make up different storylines.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
