★ "This beautiful little book will appeal to toddlers and their parents alike and would work equally well one-on-one or in story time."—School Library Journal, Starred Review
 
"Crisply inked, loosely rendered pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations take place along a single plane, generally placing the reader at the child characters’ eye level and enabling audiences to savor the animals’ irresistible appearance and the children’s quiet poise—which the animals clearly appreciate—in the wake of each sound’s reveal."—Publishers Weekly
