Here's a fun participation book that challenges preschoolers to view just part of an animal and then guess what it is. Turn the flap over and there's the whole animal so you can see if you were right or wrong.

Open the board book and there's a big, yellow piece of cheese and hidden behind it is a critter with just a few parts showing. Three questions are written on the cheese. 'Whose tail? Whose twitchy nose? Whose toes?'

Take a guess. Then flip the flap and you'll see a big, white mouse. Other noses, tails and toes in this little book belong to a dog, hippo, bear, and a baby.

I would have liked to see a few more animals included, but otherwise this is a cute guessing game that features big, bold illustrations and colorful pages that will capture any child's attention. The word repetition also offers the opportunity to increase the child's vocabulary.
