If All the Animals Came Inside by Eric Pinder. Children and adults alike will enjoy this funny and rhythmic book. A young boy imagines what would happen if a menagerie of animals moved into his house. As he envisions all the excitement the animals would create, he slowly realizes that perhaps having a house full of wild animals would be less fun than he originally thought. Eric Pinder’s fun, rhythmic, and rhyming text make for an excellent read-aloud. Children will be chanting along with the repeated line at the end of each section. Marc Brown’s energetic artwork is a perfect match for the text. Much like his fun Dancing Feet, these bright and beautiful cut-paper illustrations are filled with humor and delight. This is an entertaining and funny book that will be a great addition to story time as well as lap-reads at home. See this book listed in our catalog
