All God's Critters by Bill Staines illustrated by Kadir Nelson

"Big. . . small . . . quiet. . . loud. . . feathered, flippered, or furred. . . All God's critters have a place in the choir! And this jubilant and raucous bunch is waiting for you to join in because everybody has a part to sing. It doesn't matter if you sing like a bird. . . howl like a wolf. . . or croak like a frog!" (book jacket)

The first thing to pop out at me are the AMAZING illustrations by Kadir Nelson. They are absolutely gorgeous and I almost feel as if I can touch the hippo an feel the bumps on her skin. My favorite little critter has to be the duckling in the middle of the book who just quacks while he's on his way. So adorable!
