Who Am I?: An Animal Guessing Game

Who Am I?: An Animal Guessing Game 
Steve Jenkins & Robin Page
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017. Picture Book.

In this clever picture book young readers are able to guess what animals are being described by a variety of clues. For example when the book reads, “I have two round yellow eyes, soft, silky feathers, eight grasping claws, a sharp black beak, and a mouse for a snack! Whoooo am I?” Readers see little bits of clues to help them figure out that it is an (turn the page) owl! The animals are all ones that youngsters will be able to recognize and guess—which help make this a great choice for story time (seeing how kids won’t mind shouting out with confidence their guesses). Plus the book also has a section at the back that gives some more information about the various animals highlighted (which is great for little readers who like animals and animal science). Fun book!
