This book is about Kristen. Her mom wakes up and tells her husband she is having a baby. He trys to take her to the hospital but they get lost. They end up having the baby in the zoo. They bring the wrong baby home. They keep going back to the zoo and bringing animal babies home. Kristen finally goes and gets the right baby. Her mom and dad were proud of her. All the animals come to her house to get their babies. So they were all happy until Kristen's mother has twins.

I liked this book because I liked all the different animals and how silly they were. I liked how silly the mom, dad, Kristen and the animals were. My favorite part was when Kristen got the right baby and her mom and dad were proud of her.

I thought this book was great and everyone will enjoy reading it! Thanks to Taylor B for helping me.
