Raves and Reviews
"It's hard to decide what is the best part of Matthew Van Fleet's extra-sturdy interactive board book. Is it the toe-tapping rhymes, the adorable pastel-colored animals or the big tabs that, when pulled, make the gator's arms swing, the hippopotamus's skirt swish and the Bouncy Bunny's feet "hippy hippy HOP!" behind clear plastic windows? Preschoolers will chant along .with a menagerie of wild and barnyard animals ... hugely appealing." Shelf Awareness
