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.

Included animals: zebras, bats, crows, meerkats, prairie dog, and rat pups
