Praise

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, May 28, 2012:
“Sierra hints at parenthood’s more trying moments, yet what resonates loudest is unconditional love…  the mixed-species adoptions quietly affirm the value of families in all their varieties.”

School Library Journal, June, 2012:
“The joyful illustrations feature the same pointy-faced animals as in the two previous books… Fans of Wild About Books (2004) and ZooZical (2011, both Knopf) will flock to this one as well.”

Horn Book, July/ August, 2012:
“Children will love one spread in particular in which the baby animals are hiding but can be spotted by observant eyes… this is a good choice both for group sharing and as a loving bedtime story.”

Kirkus, May 15, 2012:
“In lively rhyming couplets that beg to be read aloud, Sierra’s zoo animals are back, this time proving that it takes a village zoo to raise children… Bright colors and bold patterns fill the pages, but the true stars are the animals, whose mutual affection shines through on every page.”
