"Preschoolers will respond to the story's rhythmic text, and Carle's signature bold, textured collages featuring a beautiful, multi-colored butterfly and a curly-coated lamb. The underlying message that different animals (and by extension, people) have different requirements is subtle but will be perceived by listeners. A good starting point for wide-ranging discussions." -- BOOKLIST

"Sundgaard's poetic text sings along at a brisk pace, as these two unlikely friends enjoy an afternoon's interlude. Carle, with the same use of strong color that won him recognition in THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and subsequent works, has created bright acrylic and paper collage illustrations that intensify the movement of the story." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"Sundgaard's text reads smoothly, but the book is chiefly distinguished by Carle's brilliantly colored collages, composed of beautifully painted textures. . . . Just right to share with a group." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
