"Cabrera once again brings a popular traditional song to the youngest audience . . . Perfect for the lap-sit crowd, and the large, double-page spreads make this a winner for small groups as well."—Booklist
"Cabrera's primitive illustrations are big, bold and brilliant, allowing each action-packed animal to explode across a double-paged spread in riotous colors and abstract shapes that keep pace with the rhythmic lyrics. Guaranteed to get preschoolers (and maybe their sleepy caregivers) moving."—Kirkus Reviews
"Cheerful painterly pictures in a kaleidoscope of colors enhance the jovial mood of the song."—School Library Journal
