School Library Journal - 03/01/2017 PreS-Gr 2—The purpose of this clever, playful concept book is to teach young children about human and animal behavior through a question-and-answer format. Readers will easily make text-to-self connections as the provided facts are related to familiar human activities. Kaner begins by asking, "Do you dance?" and then makes similar inquiries about playing tag, blowing bubbles, enjoying piggyback rides, having a babysitter, and more. She then reveals that honeybees, gazelles, gray tree frogs, marmosets, flamingos, and others perform similar actions (e.g., honeybees dance to communicate with one another). Faucher's watercolor illustrations are imbued with color and depict smiling families and friendly-looking creatures. Additional material about the covered subjects is also included at the end. VERDICT Perfect for kids who treasure little-known, surprising information, and a great option for collections in need of light nonfiction.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
