Overview

Melanie Walsh, creator of Do Pigs Have Stripes? and Do Monkeys Tweet? shows her skill in reaching the youngest readers. Walsh shows differences between pairs of animals and then shows how they are similar.
Lions are big and have hairy manes.
Kittens are small and fluffy. But . . .
they both have scratchy claws!
There are birds and bats, sharks and goldfish, penguins and birds—who at first may seem very different, but share similarities, too. Children will love guessing on their own.

Looks at what pairs of animals have in common, despite their obvious differences, such as sharks swimming in the deep ocean and goldfish swimming in a bowl, both blowing bubbles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Walsh continues to delight and inform toddlers with these two celebrations of unity in diversity." Kirkus Reviews

“Vibrant colors and simple shades will attract toddlers to these two appealing title about similarities and differences.” Booklist, ALA

Publishers Weekly
In signature style, Melanie Walsh (Do Monkeys Tweet?, etc.) continues her exploration of the animal kingdom in My Beak, Your Beak. "Dachshunds are long with little legs./ Dalmatians are tall and spotty. But/ they both love chasing sticks!" My Nose, Your Nose spotlights an array of people ("Arthur's hair is brown and straight./ Kit's hair is black and spiky. But.../ they both don't like shampoo!").
Children's Literature
This colorful book teaches children that although animals have differences, they also have enjoyable, and sometimes unusual, things in common. Dachshunds and Dalmatians look different but they both love to chase sticks. Penguins and Robins live in different parts of the world, but they both have pointy beaks. My 16-month-old girl daily selects this book, in the face of significant competition, and settles onto my lap for a required 2 to 3 readings. She loves the pictures of the kittens and the little crawly things that hide in the flowerbed. She enjoys the bright colors and the big pages she can turn by herself. Melanie Walsh, who has a well-respected art education, chose to illustrate this book in the style of a talented child artist with simple, large shapes that children enjoy. This style may not appeal to some adults. It resembles a display of 4th grade art-class projects on another family's refrigerator door. Parents who select books based on their children's pleasure will be glad to have this one. 2002, Houghton Mifflin Company,
— Sonya Goldman
School Library Journal
PreS-Contrasting sets of animals and children are found to have similar characteristics despite their differences. In Beak, "Lions are big and have hairy manes. Kittens are small and fluffy. But- they both have scratchy claws!" And in Nose although, "Daisy's skin is brown" and "Agnes's skin is white," "they both have cheeky pink tongues!" Full-page, childlike illustrations on a variety of bold-colored backgrounds capture the joyous tone in these two simple celebrations of diversity, geared for the very young.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
