Overview

What has spots? A cow has spots. What has feathers? A chicken has feathers. Nancy Tafuri, a Caldecott Honor artist and the award-winning creator of many books for young children, including Have You Seen My Duckling?, knows just what questions preschoolers will love to hear—and answer!

This barnyard tour will have its audience crowing with delight (and discovering interesting information about animals) as they study the big, bold paintings of the animals and birds. "An ideal book for the beginning reader to entertain a younger sibling in a game they'll both enjoy. A natural for toddler story-hour collections."—The Horn Book

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS Tafuri's familiar style of animal drawing is set off to good advantage here by generous amounts of white background, which give the book a refreshingly crisp look. In an easy question-and-answer format, children are asked to identify various animals from various portions of their anatomy, such as, ``What has a bill?'' Each answer is provided on a large two-page spread. Older children may prefer similar books such as Beau Gardiner's Guess What (Lothrop, 1985) or Eric Carle's perennial favorite, Do You Want to Be My Friend? (Crowell, 1971), but the littlest are sure to enjoy Tafuri's latest gift to them. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
