"And Here's to You" is an illustrated poem celebrating the animal world and the diverse world of people. It is beautifully illustrated, with rhythmic, rhyming text. The people featured in the illustrations are multi-ethnic and varied in age and shape. The text gives equal consideration to animals fuzzy and fierce, slimy and winged. The illustrations are brightly colored, painterly, and well-integrated with the text, which flows nicely throughout the book. The poem is repetitive and paced to hold a child's attention. This book celebrates diversity and promotes acceptance of people's differences. It is suitable for children aged 4-8. I would include this book in an under-funded public library's collection because of its cheerful tone, diverse cast, and rhythmical text.

This book is so adorable! My 3 year old daughter loves it. I bought it from a book vendor and did not expect to get such a postive reaction from her. We read it all the time!

This wonderful children's book celebrates the world and all of it's creatures. From birds to cows to people to the reader, this book emphasizes an appreciation for all living things. It's clever rhyming makes it fun for children to read, plus teaches lessons in diversity, individuality, and respect for others. It can also help children feel good about themselves. I would highly recommend this book!

This is the best book I have read in years! No one can convince me that this masterpiece should be limited to the children's picture book category. It is MUST reading for everyone. Announce it to the world!!
