Whose Toes Are Those?: Sally Symes and Nick Sharratt

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 tail?
Whose toes?
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.
