The illustrations have that 60s retro vibe that's popular right now, with a couple of wonderful touches (all the lion's toys for the tub, the birds' cat pinata--ha!--and the horses make hay-angels in the field). I especially like the snake page--really well laid out with a sophisticated palette. The repeated verse doesn't quite roll off my tongue, though, and the ending is a I-don't-know-how-else-to-end-this-book-so-we'll-just-have-everyone-say-I-love-you ending.

"When a duck says QUACK, does he really mean SNACK?" What are animals actually trying to say when they moo, tweet, or neigh? The simple rhyming format will have young listeners chiming in to make the animal noise, and then to guess what rhyming word they may mean. Good participation book for storytime.

Each page asks the reader a question of what an animal means when he roars, neighs, or quacks? Will we every know and will it matter? The end is a bit of a surprise. Illustrations are adorable. Small children will love this book.

"How do we know whwt animals say when they say what they say with their sounds every day?" This refrain carries us through humorous conjecture on what animals might mean when they make their distincive sounds.

This was an enjoyable read. It's a clever book with rhythmic rhymes and a surprise on every page. It greatly amused my 3 year old, and the pictures are quite pleasant and full of details. Probably a good preschool or library story time book.

Various animal parents and offspring speak in their own animal language, while the narrator tries to figure out what they mean. "When a duck says QUACK, does he really mean SNACK?"
