Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The message is pleasant and friendly, the writing simple and straightforward, and the illustrations playful. The cute cuddly animals bring a sense of joy to the pages. The story is fairly predictable, so beginning readers will enjoy reading it to themselves. Kids will also have fun reading the book both ways, first the sister side, then the brother. Fans of What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best by the same author will like this book too.

Artwork is cute and playful, and will appeal to young kids especially. Done in watercolors, colored pencils, and pen and ink, the colors are soft yet vibrant and the characters are a variety of different brother and sister animals who are enjoying each other's company.

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.
