Most Helpful Customer Reviews
May be good for younger storytimes. Riddles are super easy, with multiple choice. You can go with or without the multiple choice options.
The young boy character asks puzzling questions of the listeners, to pick which object he is describing based on the clue he gives. The illustrations are a great tool for guessing his object. It's simple and colorful, but would be hard to use in a classroom because kids would have to get close to the book to look at all the "guessing items". The clues are nice and easy though.
