The illustrations are not my cup of tea, but that's subjective. What's less subjective is the fact that the text starts with "If I had a little [insert: dream, house, table, dog], I would name it _____." In a child's literal mind, this implies some sort of need or want for all these things, so the book becomes slightly sad: we're listening to a story by a child who has nothing (actually - if you understand the phrase "If I had" within correct grammar - it means that you DON'T have it). That's just the first problem. The second is the rhyme:
"If I had a little cat, I would name it Curious. It would always make me happy and never make me furious." Alright. Well, whoever wrote this, let me tell you: I'm now pretty furious that I was curious... [about this book for my toddler]. Sending this one back.

The poetic text is really lovely and the illustrations by Melissa Castrillon are lush and gorgeous as usual.
