"The is bound to delight a young child."—Bookviews

A charming story of gentle compassion as a family outing takes a surprising turn! First the family finds a lost frog and decides to take him home. Before the day is over, they find a kitten, a canary, a hungry mouse, and a puppy. There is always room for one more—until they are almost home and find a lost elephant! Lift-the-flaps add fun to this youngest child memory game and story.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
A young girl and her family (mother, father, brother and sister) go shopping one day. When they spot a frog on the sidewalk, Mommy is concerned that someone will step on him. So Daddy buys a jar and they take the frog with them. An abandoned kitten is placed in their basket. They buy a beautiful canary in a cage and then rescue a white mouse from the street, which they place in Daddy's shirt pocket. A free puppy comes along in a box. The good-natured father carries all the animals, but draws the line when Mommy wants to take an elephant home. No elephants! As each animal is added, the next page features it beneath a lift-up flap until five are accumulated. The family is shown having a picnic in a meadow with their menagerie. The little girl announces on the last page that there is always room for one more. The colorful pictures contribute to the fun of the story. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

A rosy-cheeked family of five comes across a little green frog and decides to take him home in a jar. Throughout the day a kitten, canary, mouse, and puppy join the family as well. The father carries each one in a separate vessel. This cumulative tale is part memory game. The pets are reviewed with each new addition and hidden under flaps made up to look like containers. Although the flaps add a level of interaction, they could be damaged with frequent use, and the characters remain flat. More lively and engaging lift-the-flap animal books include Matthew Van Fleet's Alphabet (S & S, 2008), Eric Hill's "Spot" series (Puffin), and Lucy Cousins's "Maisy" books (Candlewick).-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
