I received an advance reader copy of this book to review
At a Glance
Farm animal lose their coats and the reader must guess why type of animal they are.
- creative take on a common board book type
- illustrations are fun and vibrant
- I wish the text was more varied, but there is something to be said for repetition in board books
Would I recommend this title:
Anytime someone can take a board book and make it fresh is a win for me. Bijsterbosch does just that with this book. On each page, the animals are presented in silhouette, and the reader must guess what the animal is. Then the reader turns the page for the big reveal. I like the high contrast between the black and white images and the the full color spreads of the animals. I think that this book would hold a baby’s attention.
