From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- A lively hand-lettered rhyme and perky illustrations combine in a cheery introduction to animals and their homes. The endpapers show individual portraits of each animal, and the opening verse sets the scene, showing each animal, in line, walking home. Succeeding pages focus on one type of animal until the concluding gate-fold challenges children to find the animals in a landscape; the verso reveals the animals' hiding places. A few inconsistencies in the sentence pattern ("Lions keeping cool"; "Frogs out in the rain") serve to maintain the rhyme scheme but do not identify a specific animal home. Yet the rhythmic verse will help young listeners, who will be aided by the sprightly pictures, to "read" along. These pictures are real charmers: a scratchy ink line surrounds rounded geometric shapes, colored in flat blocks of vibrant colors, set against clean white pages. A book that is sure to be as popular as the animals that it depicts. --David Gale, "School Library Journal"

From Publishers Weekly:

The animals are marching home through the jungle in formation. One by one, different animals break away from the group to seek specific habitats. "There are monkeys in the jungle. There are hippos by the pool. There are tigers in the grasslands. And lions keeping cool." To underground burrows and treetop homes they disperse; readers are invited to search for the colorful group on a long gatefold page. On the flip side of the gatefold, the animals reveal themselves with a resounding "BOO!" and readers can check to see how many animals they correctly identified. The cheerful illustrations make good use of white space, with crisp-looking, slightly abtract paintings of the animals in deep pastels. This is a good selection for lap reading. Ages 2-5.
