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. ( )

This story is great for reading and showing students how creative they can be when they read. It is also illustrated enough that non readers could read the pictures, and created a story as they go. The reading level is a 1.7

A silly books that depicts animals doing many things that they normally don't, like wearing sneakers. The illustrations in this book are really great, and its humor makes the story a joy to read. Also, by putting the animals in unusual situation, the author is stimulating the imagination of the reader while simultaneously making them giggle.

This book is about animals doing things that they don't normaly do like dogs wearing sneakers, sheep taking showers and goats shaving. This is about using your imagination and dreaming. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689808747, Paperback)

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?

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:12 -0400)

(see all 4 descriptions)

In a child's imagination, animals do wacky things, including ducks riding bikes, yaks skiing, and fish eating bagels.
