"A first-rate book that is as ideal for a picture book audience as for a one-on-one solitary read."—School Library Journal
"This short, cheerful tale of cooperation from Schories features engaging artwork and animal protagonists, and it operates on a very approachable level for beginning readers . . . The words have pure drive to them, and the repetition calls forth an incantatory urge to speak the words out loud. Fine for a read-alone but like dynamite for a read-aloud."—Kirkus Reviews
