This so far is my favorite picture book I've read. I love the writing and the language used in the book. The writing was very fun and flowed well. For example, "And pigs don't wear hats. And dresses look silly on Siamese cats." The rhyming allows the abstract idea of the sentences to flow together and somehow relate. The language was very descriptive and had a pattern. For example, "Cows don't go dancing. And Yaks never ski." There is a clear pattern of repetition of an animal that doesn't do something. My favorite part of this book is the ending, where she then relates it to dreams. Overall, this books purpose is to entertain and encourage creativity in young readers. ( )

I liked this book for three reasons. First, it is a good book for beginning readers, the writing flows well, making it easy to read. The funny rhymes, such as, “Moose don’t go bowling And hens never swim And you’ll never see roosters Working out in a gym.” keep the reader engaged. Along with these funny rhymes about animals, you have great illustrations to go along with them. These illustrations are so detailed and eye-catching; they are sure to make your kids laugh. Lastly, the book ends with the author asking you to “close your eyes and draw with your mind” because everyone has dreams can be different and can look a little funny, just like some of these rhymes.

a fun book that discusses all the things that animals don't do (rabbits don't go to the beach and sun bathe)
a funny book to discuss what animals really do and what people do

Animals would look pretty silly doing a lot of the things that people do all the time. The unlikely combinations in Laura Numeroff's cheerful rhymes and Joe Mathieu's bright, zany pictures will make you laugh out loud. What sort of crazy creatures can you dream up?

This book is entertaining for children because it shows animals doing task that the people normally do. It has great illustrations of cows dancing, and bears taking a bath in a tub, along with many more, but as you read the words it explains that animals can't do any of these things. The last page holds the meaning of this story in that it tells children that anything is possible if only you can dream. ( )
