Praise For If Animals Celebrated Christmas (If Animals Kissed Good Night)

“Beyond cute, without sliding into saccharine. . .The illustrations, with washes of color and starry skies, are done on a flat plane that brings the action close. The rhymes and action words throughout provide extra pep for this already-spirited tale.” —Booklist
