Each animal is happy just how they are! This book describes a unique feature of several different animals with the underlying message that we are each different, and we should be happy with who we are. There are minimal words on each pages, but they have depth. For example “pink” is written in the color pink, and “plump” is very, well, plump! The illustrations of each animal are quite fantastic, sometimes taking up a full two page spread. Some of the pictures take up both pages the long way, like the giraffe. The brush strokes are visually appealing, adding a whole new layer to the illustrations. Each animal is posed in such a funky way, sure to get a smile out of the kids. Perfect for a storytime or a one on one read!
