"Cabrera’s swirls and dabs of paint, besides covering a wide spectrum of colors, also give a three-dimensional appearance to her paintings. . . . a bright enticement to the very young to sing along, and learn about the farm animals."—Kirkus Reviews
"Cabrera’s bright, splotchy illustrations follow the text, with full spreads devoted to each verse. Young children can read along easily enough and can probably add their own verses to the mix."—School Library Journal
