Dogs don’t wear sneakers, pigs don’t wear hats, and dresses look silly on Siamese cats.

Animals would look pretty silly doing a lot of the things that people do all the time. The unlikely combinations in Laura Numeroff’s cheerful rhymes and Joe Mathieu’s bright, zany pictures will make you laugh out loud. What sort of crazy creatures can you dream up?

My 19-month-old daughter LOVES this book! We found it at the library, and after reading it at least 3 times a day for 3 weeks straight I finally broke down and bought it. Although she's probably too young to understand some of the silliness of a sheep in the shower and a honey bun baked by a bee, she loves the pictures and the silly rhymes. She also likes identifying all of the animals. I'm sure this book will continue to be a favorite of hers. It's very imaginative and the illustrations are fantastic!

Great book to use when talking about animals and reality. Book gives examples of things that animals don't really do, but then encourages readers to think of silly things they could do.

This is a short picture book about animals wearing clothes, going bowling, etc. The beginning of the story talks about animals doing things that humans are supposed to do, but at the end we find out it was all a dream. It teaches us that in our dreams we can do or see anything. There is a lot of rhyming and repetition that would be great for students who are beginning to learn their rhyming words. I would recommend this book to kindergarten/first grade age ranges. It also has great pictures that are colorfully illustrated.
