This is a fun learning your animals book. My kids love lifting the flap and calling out what animal it is. ( )

One of many books I was far too old to read but couldn't resist because they involved flap-lifting or pop-ups. ( )

So, a fun idea, but unfortunately, this book is dated and gender stereotyped. With books like this -- depicting all eight different animals as male -- no wonder kids go to the zoo and call every single animal "him" unless it is obviously nursing an infant. Sandra Boynton's books are a great alternative, and not so painfully and unnecessarily gendered. ( )

Our whole family loves this, but it's another kid's book where all the characters are male. Gotta change those pronouns up.
