Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Youngsters learn the names of animal babies ("moo, Moo, Brown Cow have you any calves?...") when they read Ms. Wood's inviting picture book. Or, just as easily, sing it to the tune of "Baa, Baa, black sheep."
School Library Journal
Pre-Gr 1-- A ginger-colored kitten asks various animals if they have any babies in this seemingly simple concept book. A brown cow has one calf, a black sheep has two lambs, a yellow goat has three kids, etc. ; the kitten greets each animal by its trademark moo or baa or bleat. The large print is repetitive and easy to read. Gleaming watercolors completely fill each doubled-paged spread, giving such a lush feel to the book that its sheer attractiveness may captivate readers before its weaknesses become apparent. The blurred, impressionistic outlines of the animals and their mottled coloration make it far more challenging for fledgling counters than the similar, yet more successful, Brown Bear , Brown Bear (Holt, 1992) by Bill Martin, Jr . Nonetheless, Bonner's artwork is very appealing. --Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library

As a reading specialist, I was quite picky about my child's books. This book meets all the special criteria in pre-reading skills including rhyming, repetition of the same words, animal names and the proper names for the babies, counting, colors, wonderful pictures to look at, and most of all she LOVES it. It's her favorite book to read to her new baby brother. It will be my choice for a baby shower gift.
