“The patient and hypnotic rhythm is exactly the kind of thing that will worm its way into the memories and imaginations of toddlers, who will likely start ippity-oppiting themselves after a single reading.” -Quill & Quire.

"The simple text, with onomatopoeic words, will attract young children to this rhyming story." -Canadian Children's Booknews

“The very simple text, with onomatopoeic words, is great for reading aloud. Toddlers won't need much encouragement to join in the chorus of slippity-slop's and clippity-clop's.Highly recommended.” -CM Magazine
