Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring)
Baby animals ask their mothers whether humans keep warm the same ways they do and are set straight regarding blankets and winter clothing. The rhyming text has a mildly humorous touch, but the mostly naturalistic paintings of animals pair awkwardly with dialogue balloons and cartoon drawings of people acting like animals. Four appended pages provide further information and an activity.
