BETTER TOGETHER is a sweet, informative ode to families, both animal and human. Each spread starts with a single animal, all alone. Then a gatefold opens to reveal that the single animal is actually one of many, working together to solve a problem, from hunger to safety, to feeling lonely. At the end, we see how human families come together in similar ways to care for their little ones. Careful readers will be delighted to see that every animal mentioned on the book is hidden somewhere in the last image. The very last spread offers interesting facts about the animals in the book, including the collective nouns for each. Jared Schorr's bright, lively cut-paper illustrations and an unexpected freshness round out a very satisfying package.

Review

"The illustrations are made of comfortably round lines and are bright with a primary-color palette that little readers are quite familiar with. There is value added with vocabulary that introduces the names of animal babies and collective names, where appropriate." ―Kirkus

"Jared Andrew Schorr craft the engaging  Better Together: A Book of Family with poetic text (including plural group names), a lift-the-flap format and inventive die-cuts." ― Shelf Awareness
