Spoiler alert...they do not. This is a fantastic read-aloud for toddlers or preschoolers. They will have fun answering yes or no and telling you which animals should be on the page!

This is adorable! It has simple illustrations and is a quick read that is silly enough for older (think Kindergarten) kids though aimed at younger kids.

Very cute (and short!) picture book asking children simple questions about animals. I feel this would work well in a baby or toddler story time.

This one isn't as engaging as Do Monkeys Tweet? because the questions are harder to interact with for a young child. The illustrations are absurd and fascinating, even grotesque--such as a giraffe with its neck and legs poking out of mole holes.

This book was read at story time. It gives an animal and then the incorrect place that it lives. The illustrations of the incorrect places were fun. It breaks the pattern once, too. My favorite was the griaff in the burrow.

This would be a good read aloud for kindergarten or 1st grade. It is fun because it shows animals in their wrong habitats. It can really help kids understand homes.

I thought this was cute. It helped kids to better understand homes. This book might also fall under the category of predictable as well as concept.

So bad. Not even a page about a lion on lily pad.
Overall the book was just lame and unimaginative.

This had us giggling. M loves silly, "slapstick" books. Educational with vocab and natural science, too.

Fun juxtapositions of animals in the wrong habitats. Will be a good interactive read aloud.
