On each spread of this board book, totz will see the tail end and the nose of an animal character that covers both pages. However, its mid-section (and the middle of the spread) is covered by an environmental clue. Totz are also provided with 3 question-clues. For instance, in one of my favorite spreads:
Whose big gray nose?
(There’s a jungle shown in the middle of the spread, going across the middle fold.)
(Turn ½ page flap to remove environmental clue and reveal entire animal.)
A bright, colorful, clever book that will keep totz guessing and turning the pages all the way to the last spread, where the character is a baby.
