School Library Journal
“Expressive animal characters stand in for people, but their activities and the objects they use, from hairbrushes to running shoes, all relate solidly to a youngster’s experience. Cheery pen-and-ink illustrations pop off the background, which makes effective use of white space, and everything is labeled…. Youngsters will enjoy all there is to see in this book, and it’s ideal for encouraging vocabulary building.” —School Library Journal
