[A] sweet Australian import… Blair, whose watercolors will appeal to fans of Helen Oxenbury, has a keen eye for toddlers’ expressions and gestures, making this book as much about the appeal of young humans as young animals.
—The New York Times
Blair’s Helen Oxenbury–like crayon-and-watercolor double-page spreads and vignettes capture the endearing tots’ enthusiasm and energy. The baby critters are equally cute and cuddly in the art’s soft colors. [T]he picnic scene is … entirely engaging; Blair captures posture, balance and grasping hands deftly. This title is perfectly age-appropriate, with the right number of pages and just enough text for the intended audience. Here’s hoping these youngsters step out for another adventure very soon.

Delicate crayon-and-watercolor portraits and a bevy of animal noises make for a gentle, rewarding trip to the farm.
