I personally loved this book. It was so sweet. I am only a kid and I do not recommend this book for adults because it is not that hard to read and has simpul

A decent early reader, particularly for young animal lovers. But be warned: one of the baby animals dies, so if your child is particularly sensitive to such things, skip this volume in the series (or at least the last story -- the cover picture of this book may be too adorable to resist!).

This book is a collection of 5 stories of animal friendships, designed to appeal to kids in the 6-10 age range. In terms of reading level, it's comparable to an early chapter book -- a bit harder than Frog and

This is a great book for children to read with their parents! It's a quick read with some adorable pictures (can you saw 'Awww'?). I found it gave enough information without being too overwhelming and it held my attention for the few minutes it took me to read. Ms. Holland has 3 books in this little 'series'. These are definitely worth checking out!

I liked it because it was interesting. it was interesting because it had two animals together and I never knew that animals could be so together, sometimes like a lion and a rabbit, we don't think they could be together, but that book said they could.

Hübsche Geschichten über außergewöhnliche Tierfreundschaften, für Kinder gut geeignet. Nur die Fotos hätten ein wenig größer sein können.
