Children with have fun with the surprising use of rhyme in the text and the illustrations are fantastic.

As the only panda in the zoo, Xander decides to limit his birthday party guest list to just the other bears. But while Grizzly, Brown, Black, and both Polars accept, Koala points out that she is actually a marsupial. Gamely, Xander invites all the mammals, which would have been fine, except that Rhinoceros wants to bring his bird pal, and then Crocodile angles for an invite, and soon Xander's little "bear-affair" turns into a zoo-wide bash! With gentle, cuddly-looking watercolor illustrations and bouncy, well-crafted rhymes, Xander's Panda Party is a charming readaloud. A bonus section of animal facts adds appeal for the most inquisitive kids

Kids will relish playing with the various sounds of language in Linda Sue Park's newest picture book. Joyous, rhyming text and complex vocabulary introduce children to new, vibrant word, while Matt Phelan's illustrations add ebullience to the story.
