This book is almost like a child's intro to biology (or mammalogy really), which I like and I think any child would find interesting. However, maybe I'm nitpicking, but the way the book was written is really odd to me. At first it starts out rhyming, then on certain pages it stops or has breaks between pages that don't flow well. This makes it a bit difficult to read with any rhythm. I thought the pictures were well-done, except they seemed bland. Just animals kind of hanging out on a page not doing anything. I think any child would love to read this book, but I felt like a lot more could be done, both creatively and educationally, to make this book a lot better.
