Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this touch and feel board book, silly questions like the one in the title are posed. Then there is a comment about the featured animal, and a painting of it in it's habitat. The penguin is shown in swirling snow with a baby chick cavorting near its tummy (brood pouch). The tummy is soft and fuzzy. The hedgehog is prickly and her skin, which kids can touch, is rough. The ostrich has feathers to touch while the walrus has stiff whiskers. There are numerous habitats so lessons can be absorbed just looking at the pictures. The animals are given a bit of personality so while they are not realistic paintings, they are accurate as to the characteristics noted in the text. The promotional text notes that readers will encounter "luscious art and bouncy rhyming couplets…in this delightfully tactile book." It is entertaining and fun, but not a-knock-your-socks-off book.
