Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 08/01/2022 Whittingham’s book for very young children has a repetitive text that begins: “Rabbit has ears— / Long, floppy ears. / Rabbit has ears.” Each clear, full-color photograph shows one of nine animals on the left side of the page; on the right is a smaller picture of a child revealing their corresponding body part along with the words “I do too!” The name of the animal is printed in a bold typeface of one of several colors, while the child’s statement is shown in the same yellow, green, red, or blue. The highlighted body parts include ears, eyes, nose, cheeks, and tongue, and the featured kids come from several different backgrounds. At the book’s conclusion, five simple activities, which use the text for inspiration, are suggested for playtime. This entertaining activity book will work well for one-on-one sharing and as a toddler storytime selection, since it encourages children to shout out the refrain while pointing to the body part being named. Due to the repetition, this title could also serve as a beginning reader for slightly older children. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
