The text on each page is short enough that you should be able to get through with it before baby/toddler turns the page on you. The rhymes for the most part flow well and do a good job of highlighting normal activities in baby's life. Mama koala's rhyme, for example, is: "Mama, Mama, / Play with me, / Carry me, / So I can see." Short & sweet.
The art is quite beautiful and portrays the animals with realistic details instead of the cartoonish drawings of some other children's books. Most of the pages use warm colors, and several of the animals have sweet expressions (like the panda baby's contented look snuggling with mama), and overall this book just seems to leave a warm and fuzzy feeling when looking at the pictures and reading it with baby.
