What Happens Next is a cute and fun children's nonfiction. The appropriate age group for this book is between 3 and 5.
The book give several scenarios and asks the reader to think about what would happen if those events taking place. The animals are familiar, animals children may have already been exposed to at the local zoo. This book bring life to science for younger children. This book helps children to form a hypothesis on what could happen. It allows children to think and not just be told
Lift the flap informational book about behaviors of select animals.
We read this in Spanish. Great book!
A nature books with flaps that encourage readers to predict what will happen next. Vibrant digital illustrations add to the appealing layout and a two page spread at the end of the book challenges readers to match pictures from the previous layouts to work on comprehension and retelling skills.

A great read for pre-readers and beginning readers alike and one that will encourage exploration of the environment and especially animals.

Flaps to lift give this preschool science level picture book child appeal. I plan to use it in my 3-5 year old story time to talk with parents about how making predictions about events in a story can build reading comprehension and nurture narrative skills.
This lift-the-flap format is a great way to explain things that happen in nature in an interesting and fun way.

"I was very small when I saw my first dolphin," says zoologist Nicola Davies, recalling a seminal visit with her father to a dolphin show at the zoo. Enchanted at the sight of what she called the "big fish" jumping so high and swimming so fast, she determined right then that she would meet the amazing creatures again "in the wild, where they belonged." And indeed she did--as part of a pair of scie ...more
