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.
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-

Fun to play the game with kids - who uses these various hats?
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
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.

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!
