100 Animals on Parade

100 Animals on Parade
by Masayuki Sebe

Picture Book, 24 pages
Published March 1st 2013 by Kids Can Press 
This book doesn't contain JUST 100 animals on parade! There are 100 bears, 100 pigs, 100 beetles, 100 rabbits, and 100 birds. Count along from 1 to 100 as each group parades across the pages until they all reach their final destination, the Animal Festival! Each set of critters brings their contribution to the party whether it is music, food or entertainment. The cartoonish illustrations are quirky and at first glance a little cluttered. Then as the text is read it becomes apparent this is on purpose as the book is meant to be a seek and find book, not your regular read-aloud storybook. Small text throughout guides the reader to look for various items within the picture. This is a cute interactive book to share with a child in a one-on-one setting.
