Reviews

"Schwartz and Gomez have crafted a pleasant tale in rhyming couplets about working together, pitching in, and planning ahead. The digitally rendered illustrations are colorful and full of activity as animals clad in work clothes tote tool boxes, measure, lift beams, nail, caulk, drill, and construct. The almost perfectly round Toad alone, clad in pink overalls and safety goggles, with a tiny yellow hard hat perched atop, is practically worth the price of admission. Gentle humor successfully communicates the importance of teamwork to young readers."-- "Kirkus Reviews, March 2015"
"A rhyming, playful story.... The colorful images are soft and playful, with craftily illustrated angst-ridden faces of the forest animals.... The vocabulary is heavy at times, with caulking and dictator appearing among the many potentially unfamiliar words. But this offers a great opportunity to build some early literacy skills, along with the singsong rhyming text. VERDICT The life lesson of sharing and being polite are important ones, making this story a good read for most children."-- "School Library Journal, May 2015"
