From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 3–A colorfully garbed couple take readers on a jaunty journey to the Galapagos Islands. For each day of the week, the rhymed text introduces one of the islands' unique animals. The repetition of the chorus "We're sailing to Galapagos. I wonder who we'll see" encourages audience participation. The bright collages create striking vistas that will also enhance group sharing. The youngest listeners will enjoy the visit to giant tortoises, black iguanas, and blue-footed boobies before they sail home. Older readers can learn more about the animals and Charles Darwin's famous exploration by perusing the informative entries following the rhyming section. Krebs offers an excellent introduction to a unique set of islands and some of its rare inhabitants. For a complementary choice that considers a single species, consider Francine Jacobs's Lonesome George, the Giant Tortoise (Walker, 2003).–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
