From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4-- A menagerie of animal poems set against a kaleidoscope of color. From wondering whether a polar bear is swimming in his underwear to the thought that a feather found is a letter from a bird; from the blazing eyes of a tiger to the solitude of the elephant alone ``When all the boys and girls are gone,'' these selections take readers through the gamut of zoo favorites by way of word and art. The poems are arranged somewhat in the manner of Ciardi's You Read to Me, I'll Read to You (HarperCollins, 1961), giving the opportunity for cooperative reading between child and adult. The variety of feelings in the verses, coupled with the rich artwork, makes this volume a worthy addition to poetry collections. --Joyce Richards, Prairie Grove Elementary School, AR

From Kirkus Reviews:
Nineteen more or less contemporary poems, most of them previously published but relatively unfamiliar; each is brief, lyrical, and expresses a child's pleasure or curiosity. The entries are of good quality (although not especially demanding), focused on insights rather than on humor. Using multiple insets and frames, Wallner provides plenty to look at in each carefully composed double spread; his gently anthropomorphized animals aren't sentimentally portrayed, but they do have popular appeal and should help draw readers to this pleasant collection. (Poetry/Picture book. 4-10) -- Copyright 1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
