"A high-stepping reminder that we aren’t the only ones who can put on a show."
— Kirkus Reviews

"Nonreaders will enjoy looking at the illustrations, beginning readers will be able to decode the short sentences, and even older readers will be able to get information by reading the longer paragraphs. This book will be of interest to animal lovers for fun and for research."
