There is a lot to see in this not-so-ordinary book about colors. Young children will enjoy naming the things they see as the objects magically appear and disappear with each see-through page. In the back of the book there are big and bold colorful dots that magically turn into new colors too. Who knew magic could be found in a book? This a great book for "now you see it, now you don’t" fun.

Are your ears as big as a donkey’s? Are you taller than a turkey? Could you hold a baby chick in your hand? With fun facts and fold-out pages throughout, this oversized nonfiction book gives a life-size look at some of your favorite farm animals. Large, clear photographs show piglets, ducks, goats, and sheep—even the sneaky fox that might come to the farm at night. Young children will relate to seeing how old each animal is, from the three- year old owl to the six-year old cat. Check out the height chart at the back of the book to see how you measure up!

Book cover Stripes of All Types New Review
Susan Stockdale (2013) , under 40 pages
Audience: Toddlers, Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Non-Fiction
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Why do so many animals in so many habitats have stripes? Some use them to hide so they can hunt their prey, some use stripes so the hunters can`t find them, and some use them to communicate. There are even animal stripes that we still don`t understand. This nonfiction picture book wonderfully shows the many stripes in the animal world and describes them with rhyming text. A matching game at the back of the book challenges you to name the striped animals you`ve seen. This is a book you will read again and again.
