Praise For Row, Row, Row Your Boat

"Nursery rhymes and cheerful ditties have become Cabrera’s forte. . . . This makes a fine addition to storytime collections where song variations are ever popular."—Booklist
 
"Though the animals’ expressions incline toward the cartoonishly cutesy, there is plenty of usability here and a whole lot of kid appeal, particularly with the combination of sound effects and large-scaled, boldly hued illustrations that work well on a storytime carpet. The endpapers, which show the boat’s entire route from start to finish, are particularly handy for encouraging young listeners to make predictions, and the more musically inclined will appreciate the notation at the end of the tale."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
 
"Cabrera transmutes the simple children’s song into a participatory singalong with a nod to wildlife diversity."—Kirkus Reviews
