This book is a perennial favorite for a reason: its call-and-response pattern makes it easy for even very young children to engage with the book. It lends itself particularly well to incorporating elements of rhythm—clapping, snapping, etc. Eric Carle’s classic illustrative style is bold and bright, and the animals stand out well on their plain white backgrounds. This book is great for reading to babies, and can be enjoyed for years.
