summary: This book is about imagination and all the different characteristics that a person can have. It also shows that a human can relate to animals in many different ways.
reflection: The book made me feel that every page, the child related himself to another animal and in some ways I felt the same way. The artwork was fantastic, so detailed and colorful!

This book is about a boy who uses animals to explore his own self identity. He makes comparisons about his speed versus an animals speed. The illustrations bring the book to life. The boy has a greater understanding of himself. This book is for ages 3-7. The reader is introduced to different animals in the journey of this book. ( )

Book description
Preschool children really respond well to this story. Children can catch on and come with some of their own descriptions, and we usually make a class book.
