Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Tap in to your little one's love affair with the word "no" by asking this rib-tickling series of silly questions. "Is this the nest of a goat?" reads one spread, in which a billy goat perches absurdly in a bird's nest. After your child's predictably exuberant reply, turn the page to see a more plausible resident: a small gray bird. Walsh's vibrant, clean-lined paintings of a giraffe, guinea pig, fish, and more, all in their natural and unnatural habitats, will hold children's attention while teaching plenty about where animals live-and don't. (Ages Birth to 2)
Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2006
Children's Literature - Barbara Carroll Roberts
This is the kind of book toddlers love. It's full of silly anomalies, such as a goat in a bird's nest and a parakeet in a fish bowl. These make very young children laugh, while also helping them learn to sort pictures and events into those that make sense and those that do not. This is an important task of early childhood, and Walsh brings great charm to the process. Her text is simple and spare, and her illustrations look like they might have been painted with the kind of poster paints children use in school. The simple lines and solid blocks of bright color make the illustrations easily accessible to even the youngest children. Written with the same question-and-answer structure that makes the "Where's Spot?" series of books so popular with toddlers, this book is sure to have little ones begging their parents to read it again and again.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-As she did in Do Pigs Have Stripes? (1996), Do Monkeys Tweet? (1997), and Do Donkeys Dance? (2000, all Houghton), Walsh has created another book to increase youngsters' awareness of the world around them. Here she poses nonsense questions about animal homes. The correct response to each one is "no," except for the last inquiry. For example, "Do parakeets live in bowls? No, but fish do. Do guinea pigs live in webs? No, but spiders do. Do fleas live in fur? Yes! Scratch, scratch!" Strong simple images are set against bold backgrounds, creating eye-catching illustrations. A solid choice where the previous titles have proven popular.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Walsh repeats her winning formula, this time asking children about animal's homes. "Do crocodiles live in shells?" Toddlers will love shouting out each "NO." Guessing what animal would make the answer a "yes" is an added game and relatively easy for four of the five questions (mole's burrow being the hard one). Readers will be kept on their toes by the last question, always a "yes"-"Do fleas live in fur?" The observant will spot the answer to the title question on the title page. Bright colors, limited text, subjects that fill the page and just enough detail to identify each animal are just right for toddlers, who will delight in the incongruousness of seeing a goat in a bird's nest and a guinea pig hanging from a spider's web. Perfect for story hours, classroom reads or just a rambunctious reading with a single lap-sitter, this is sure to elicit laughs and loud answers from any audience. (Picture book. 2-5)
