I thought this would be an easy interactive picture book for storytimes with younger kids who are just learning to engage with books, but the pictures are a bit abstract and unclear.

Whose Hat Is This? was a really adorable look at community workers and the hats that they wear. The book is interactive too! Each job has a page with the hat in bright colors, and then the page following has the worker and the name of the job that they do. The kids had a blast trying to guess the hats before the page was turned. I have older children, and they still considered it completely worth the challenge!

I was especially enamored with the fact that there are both men and women in each job.

I really enjoyed reading this book to my after school Pre -k class. The lesson for that week was community helpers ,so i read this book during circle time to introduce the topic.I wanted to see if the students already knew which hat belongs to the correct community helper. I played a matching game with the students after i read the

Summary: Simple non-fiction book that encourages the reader to look at part of a hat guess who it belongs to. astronaut, beekeeper, chef, construction worker, firefighter, football player, police officer

First full page: "Whose hat is this, so bright and shiny?"
Next full page: "This is a firefighter's helmet. She runs into burning buildings to put out fires. Her helmet keeps her head safe from falling objects and extreme heat." (Fun fact is also included)

In series: Whose Is It?

Nice simple non-

I love 'guessing game" books for story time - they encourage audience involvement and engagement, which encourages fun and enjoyment. This one shows a portion of a hat/helmet and a one sentence question/hint and then, when the reader turns the page, there is the answer and information about the specific hat/helmet. Some of the hats are quite esoteric - like a beekeeper's hat. My young audience correctly guessed more than half, and really enjoyed the process. The illustrations are bright and bold ...more

Many kinds of people wear hats. Can you guess who's underneath each one?

I like the idea of this book, but the execution feels like Illustrator 101 (not to mention Gender "Equality" 101). The Boy (2.75) likes it and it does have some fun elements to it, including a good bit of informative though sometimes repetitive text, but overall I thought it was okay. This was another potty training standby.

Read this book to a group of Kindergartners who- although they liked it- pretty much guessed every hat on the first try. I like that this book asks questions and encourages inquiry.
This is a great book to use for a hat storytime or community workers theme. For the younger set you can just read the first line on each page.

Large and colorful illustrations.

An interactive survey of workers in the community. Kids can guess which hat belongs to which job, and learn a little about their neighborhood while they do it!
