Praise for the Little Geniuses series
National Storytime TitleBest Picture Book of the Month selection---Barnes and Noble
"Continuing the vocabulary-building they began in Big Words for Little Geniuses, the Pattersons focus here on creatures with names that beg to be sounded out and relished--from the "silly-looking aye-aye" to the "adorable" dumbo octopus, axolotl, and jerboa. Pan supplies stylized portraits in illustrations that are all bright colors and blobby shapes, as cheery as Matisse paper collages. ...This parade will give the next generation of Jane Goodalls and Roger Tory Petersons a leg up on some of the wild kingdom's more colorful (and sonorously named) residents."
