"While I really appreciate trying to make this book as green as possible, I agree with another reviewer that unfortunately this made the book very muted and dull looking. This makes the book hard to hold a small child's attention. I also felt that the lift-the-flaps were a little flimsy and didn't stand out enough for a toddler to really grasp the idea. Further, I felt the message of sustainability and supporting wildlife fell a little short as it was too vague for kids who are not yet ready to understand the connection and also didn't exemplify (beyond picking up litter) how we are supposed to support wildlife. I did like the words and, despite lacking contrast, some of the illustrations were cute and artful." said.

"I thought the text was entertaining both in subject matter and it the simple rhyme scheme. The animals are ones that kids will be interested in. The style of the illustrations, and indeed, the entire book design is very attractive- the colors are harmonious, the shapes are bold but are offset by the earth-toned textures. Unfortunately, this book doesn't work well for young kids as the pages are so muted that the illustrations are actually difficult to see with the recycled, unbleached brown paper and low contrast images. Nice message about sustainability too, but will require more information to make a firm connection between animals which are often seen in a zoo and environmentally correct actions." said.
