Xander Panda started with a vision in mind of a party for pandas. It turns out after further thinking that he couldn't possibly have a party for just pandas when he was the only panda at the zoo. He then decided that he was going to invite all the bears. Well, that didn't work out either because some other animals at the zoo were finding out about the party and wanted to join as well. Xander Panda decided to welcome everyone, and at last, it was a great party at the zoo with all the animals and creatures that he invited and attended. This story is fun and light and overall teaches children about inclusion. I enjoyed it very much. It made me smile with the bright colors of the animals, the conversations that were happening between the different species and how it rhymed. The author did a great job of incorporating words that would expand a child's vocabulary. I enjoyed this book very much. ( )

This book is now one of my favorite picture books. It is very entertaining, and it is also easy to stay occupied with. I like this book for many reasons, but the most important reason is because it's moral of the story is to make sure to always include everyone. The moral of the story is so important for everyone to understand, but it's especially important for children to understand. I plan on using this book in the future while I work with children. ( )
