I thought this book was really cute to read to young children, and the illustrations were very realistic. The only negative thing I felt toward this book was the that it was very repetitive. However, I know I could read it in front of young children and make it exciting for them and get them involved in the story which would make it easier to read.

The very swift pace of this book - where kids guess what animal is next based on their nose and toes (and, of course, you can make your own animal sounds as hints) - makes it a good extra book to bring into storytime in case you finish everything else earlier than expected.

Audrey's all time favorite book. I read it to her at least six times today and she read it to herself even more times. She likes books, but I have never seen her as eager to read something as she is with this book.

On each page their is a clue to whose nose and toes around peeking around the corner from the next page. They are baby animals which would be especially appealing to the younger set.

This is a book filled with fun. There are amazing illustrations of animals and they are laid out in a guessing game format. The question is "Whose Nose and Toes," the hint is the tip of a nose and the hint of a toe and then the kids yell out their guesses. My storytime audience was engaged and very participatory...and guess almost all of the animals correctly. This is a marvelous real-aloud.

Super simple, repetitive book. Cute. The first page features a nose and toes of an animal and asks, "Whose nose and toes?" Then you turn the page and see the whole animal and it tells you who the nose and toes belong to. Perfect for the toddler/preschool age child or even a beginning reader.

Recommends it for: /z/
This is really cute and fun book for targeting final /z/. I have a copy to share if any one wants to use it.

I made an activity to accompany it. I put pictures of other animals and some people (like a clown) on note cards and then had the client add noses and toes to match.

Toddlers would be the best group of students to read this book to! They love to guess which animal will come next-They especially love it when they have the book memorized-it's almost as if they can read it themselves!

Can you identify an animal from just its nose and toes? You will be able to after this book.

The illustrations of the animals are particularly cute - all of them are young with particularly big eyes!

I read this to my daughter when it first came out. She is now 5 and keeps picking it out at the library. We love it. It has really cute illustrations and the kids really get into it (not a bed time story).

Beautifully illustrated book that shows the nose and toes of an animal on one page and invites children to figure out what animal is on the back of the page. Great for kids from 1-3.

This book looked cute... one of the pictures, the cow's nose, I think isn't very clear, I couldn't guess what it was myself... There ate better books out there.
