Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
How interesting to encounter a "pull tab and lift the flap" book that is a little different than most. This board book expands into four page scenes when the tab is pulled. The educational content is pitched by asking the question "Who are we?" But first the reader/listener is offered a few facts about the animals, such as their habitats and how they move. For example, readers learn that a certain animal lives in a herd and eats tasty leaves that are high up in the trees. What are they? Giraffes! Opening the flap not only shows a herd of giraffes munching on leaves, there is text that provides additional information. In this case, kids learn that giraffes are the tallest animals in the world. There are five animals presented and they are reprised on the final four page pull-out. It is a clever book with enough information to whet appetites for more. It might be fun to pair it with Zarafa: The Giraffe Who Walked to the King and The Giraffe That Walked to Paris. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
An engaging, lift-the-flap riddle book that will keep little ones guessing. The left side of each double-page spread offers a short, rhyming couplet describing a certain type of animal's movement. For instance, the book begins with: "When we move, we are pretty slow. / Waddling keeps us warm in snow." On the right side of the page is the question "Who are we?" printed atop a flap. On the edge of each flap is a tab with an arrow as well as a clue to the riddle's answer. In this case, readers see orange, webbed feet and a white body. Simply lifting the flap reveals the word "Penguins" and three penguins who appear to be waddling across the page, but pulling on the tab in the direction indicated by the arrow reveals a hidden gatefold with another penguin scene and a fun fact: "We penguins have feathers to keep us dry and warm!" In addition to the penguins, readers see giraffes, snakes, arctic foxes and leopards. The rhyming riddles are amusing but not easy; children will need help from the clue on the tab to guess the answers. The appealing illustrations feature frolicking animals and uncluttered, skillfully rendered landscapes. Toddlers and young preschoolers, both independently and in groups, will enjoy both the guessing game and the simple, interesting animal facts this offering provides. (Board book. 1-3)
