Why I love this book:
A lot of alliteration.
Bouncy rhythm and lovely rhyme. Broken up with a Ding-dong that kids are sure to in on saying.
This is such a fun and sweet picture book. The illustrations are bright and cheerful, and all the animal characters are adorable. How can you go wrong with Animals and doughnuts?
