A lively, loving serenade full of animals and rhyme that celebrates the joy of playing together.

Humans become chickens and roosters, frogs and dogs, snails, whales and many more animals under the sun as children explore their creativity and uniqueness and caregivers play alongside.

With messages of inclusiveness and unconditional acceptance, the rollicking, rhyming couplets depicting a day filled with dress-up and make-believe are a humorous and satisfying reminder to children of just how much their caregivers love them, no matter what.

“Toddlers and adults alike will enjoy sharing this story. Simple and sweet.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“Invites repeat readings…Story hour attendees will quickly learn to chant along, and naming the animals will be a happy side lesson. A title with sweet promise.”
– School Library Journal

“Delightfully playful…The perfect selection for parents or caregivers to share with young children…Encourages fanciful engagement and loving relationships.”
