This is a very appealing picture book that will be an enjoyable read-aloud for young children. It is the story of animals who work together to make a cake. Cooperation is a clear theme but it is gently presented. Throughout the book, there is repetition reminiscent of the old children’s game, “I am going on a trip and I packed…” Young children will enjoy how the book repeats as it then adds the next animal character and that animal’s contribution to the baking project. Children can play a fun memory game by trying to recall the critters and their ingredients in the correct order. The illustrations are lovely and feel reminiscent of that great master, Eric Carle. All in all, I highly recommend this one!
