The list author says: "Our son (2 years old) loves books and so do we. Here are the best books that we have found thus far that we keep reading over and over again, and that both the toddler and the parents enjoy."
"What great sounds! Wonderful for reading out loud. Do not be scarred off by the amount of text per page, try reading it out loud to your baby and you may be surprised by the attention span you can get."
"One of those books with almost no words, but illustrations that tell a great story. Gives us a chance to improvise while reading. This story of a gorilla who frees other animals and sneaks into the zoo keepers bed with them, makes me think of a child who brings stuffed animals and invades the parents' bed with them. :-)"
"One of the very best books ever -- one of the few we had to buy a second copy of because it was (ab)used too much. In Kevin Lewis' books the illustrations often tell additional aspects of the story not mentioned in the text, which is fun to explore as well."
"Animal sounds, counting, and helping are the themes of this book. It is a cross between "My Truck is Stuck" and "In the Small, Small Pond", so if your toddler enjoys those books, he or she will enjoy this one."
"Very simple line drawings and very simple words, but oh how imaginative and definitely a favorite! Consider using a card board box and a stuffed animal as a prop while reading this book, but adding gestures and sounds also works (I yoddle when we get to the box is a mountain page)."
