On each page is the title question in large print with a close-up of a tail. Next is a two page spread showing the animal in its natural habitat with an explanation of which animal it is and what it uses its tail for. My PreK and Kinder students love books like this. As a read aloud it will generate lots of conversation about other animal tails and their uses. At the end is a double gate-fold in a checkerboard pattern. This could be used for a matching game after the story. Not a have to have bo ...more

Good guessing book for kids but a little on the dull side.

Each page allows children to guess who the tail belongs to. A great way to keep kids guessing and learn about animals and what they use their tail for. Great for kids 2-4.

I have to admit this book taught me a thing or two I didn't know. Great book for children.

A guessing book in which readers are shown the close up view of an animal’s tail and the animal is introduced on the next page in a two page spread. When the animal is unveiled an explanation is included for how each animal uses their tail. Great read aloud with watercolor illustrations.

Using the Same format as her 2011 "Who Has tThese Feet", Laura Hulbert offers another installment based on tails. No list of sources, but the simplicity and predictability of the format will appeal to the older toddler and preschool child.

Very neat book--on the front of each page there's a different animal tail, and on the back, information about that animal. It's a simple concept with pretty illustrations, and is a fun, quiet, guessing game of a book that kids should really enjoy.

My youngest son who is 5 LOVED this book! Cute non-fiction book where readers get a picture of an animals tail and then they have to guess who the tail belongs to. Reminded me of another title which is similar, Whose Egg?

Cute – difficult to discern some of the tails so it is challenging - at least the first time through. Has rattlesnakes and scorpions and sharks along with horses and gerbils and peacocks. Lots of diversity!

Cute! Love the guessing books and this one is especially great since it includes some less common animals.

One page has a close up of a tail and then the next shows the whole animal. Repetitive but fun.

In kindergarten, I sat at a table working on my 5's with a chubby pencil on cardboard. I had trouble getting the pencil to go out for the pot belly of the 5, so the shapes I kept forming looked more like J's. In my determination to get the 5 figured out, I worked over the entire piece of cardboard. Finally, when I was just about to run out of space, I made a shape that actually looked like a 5. In ...more
