Laugh along with this BIG book that fosters both kindness and mathematics! No one likes to be left out! Young readers will giggle with delight as one hundred unusual animals try to squeeze into the oversized pages of this raucous rhyming tale. “But can we fit a whole blue whale?” is repeated throughout, as more animals join the melange! The humorously explosive ending features an expansive double gatefold. Educational endnotes list the 100 animals in the book.
