Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The mouse heroine of Whose Shoes? now raids the hat rack in Which Hat Is That? by Anna Grossnickle Hines, illus. by LeUyen Pham. "When I wear a flippy-floppy hat,/ I dig, plant a seed,/ and weed, weed, weed./ Which hat is that?" Readers turn the flap to find the answer ("My gardening hat!").
School Library Journal
PreS-This amusing flip-the-flap book describes different types of hats and the occasions on which they might be worn. Hines then asks readers to guess which hat is being described. For example, "When I wear a flippy-floppy hat,/I dig, plant a seed,/and weed, weed, weed./Which hat is that?" Opening the flap reveals a mouse wearing a gardening hat. Four other hats are included. The playful watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations show mice wearing the various types of headgear and engaging in related activities. Perfect for toddler storytimes.-Kristin de Lacoste, South Regional Public Library, Pembroke Pines, FL
Kirkus Reviews
Hines and Pham bring back their merry mouse in a companion tale to Whose Shoes? (2001). Hines remains true to a format that has worked previously; this time, her mischievous little one dons a variety of hats during the course of dress-up play. However the verses have matured somewhat, moving away from quirky word play to more tangible clues for young readers to decipher. A series of sprightly verses describes the particular chapeau the mouse is modeling while a second set details the mouse's actions while wearing it. "When I wear a tall white puffy hat. I measure, stir, pour, and flip, flop, flip! Which hat is that?" Readers then lift the gatefold to discover the answers to the riddles. Hines's choice of hats is toddler-perfect, the young mouse preens as a gardener, chef, and firefighter before presenting her favorite hat of all: an out-of-this-world concoction just right for young explorers. Pham's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are a cheerful reflection of the tale. With a twinkle in her eye, the young mouse gleefully scampers through her escapades, welcoming readers to join in the fun. Pham also includes plenty of visual clues to help little ones solve the puzzles. A high-spirited guessing game perfect for read-alouds and circle time. (Picture book. 2-5)
