My review: This book is so cute! I love the illustrations. There are several that were so funny that I had to giggle. I love the words, they are perfect and well written. They all rhyme. I loved that as they're invited to the party each of the animals can think of a reason just why they can't attend the party if so and so attends. The wise rooster refuses to buy their arguments and instead teaches them a lesson that they all need to learn about kindness and getting along. What a timely lesson that we can all learn something from. I can't wait to read this book to our kids and talk about the cute lesson with them!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the illustrator: Jay Fontano is a drawer. Not the kind in your dresser. The kind who draws. And that’s the fun kind.
