*"Well-executed, bouncing rhyme will have children bobbing their
heads. . . . Hall's sure-handed strokes of graphite carve out
friendly, watercolor animals and farm vistas. . . . This
self-assured, simple and successful picture book closes with a
goofy, age-old punchline that will get giggles every time.
--Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
"Rhymes are lively and steady, pitch perfect for a read aloud. . . . Sturdy ink outlines filled with confident swaths of watercolor will stand up well to group viewing. Expect demands for repeat readings, and then break for a snack of, well, you know what." --Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"Warm, funny, . . . The big, clear watercolor pictures with thick ink lines leave lots of white space, and the simple rhyming lines, with descriptive words and messy action, will encourage preschoolers to join in. . . . [Kids will delight] in the sounds of the words and the delicious rhymes. --Booklist
"If the very rhythm of the title reminds you of its ancestry-Bear Snores On is Karma Wilson's earlier best-selling work-then you know you'll be reading this book over and over again to little listeners. . . . This bovine is outdoing the Cookie Monster." -- The Hartford Courant
"The cleverly rhyming text and pace of the story make it perfect for a read-aloud. The whimsical ink and watercolor illustrations add to the humor. An instant storytime crowd pleaser." --School Library Journal
