Ashay says, " This is a fun book and great for a read aloud. Adults can really have fun with the animal sounds and counting. I call it the Old Mac Donald African Remix. The illustrations are colorful and playful too, which is a signature style of Rachel Isadora. My favorite by her is the Princess and the Pea. Buy it today!"
