I really liked this book for kids around kindergarten age because they will like all the different animals. I think it will be nice for them to follow along and be able to answer the different questions on the pages. I also think that the illustrations go along nicely with the book.

Fun book to share with my toddlers today! We did "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes" afterward.

The curious thing about this book is that the question that is posed in the title is neither asked nor answered inside the book. With each question posed, "Does a bird have a big black wet nose?", "Does a mouse have a green spiky tail?", the answer is found on the following page. The image provided with the question gives a clue as to what the mystery animal could be. Then it is up to the reader to answer and discover what the animal actually is. The book makes a good read for little ones in kin ...more
This is really interactive book. The book asks a question like "do pigs have stripes" which gives the children a change to identify the animal the book is talking about before seeing the picture of it. By the time they are done with this book, they are all smiling and feel quite smart.

Great hilarity and use of imagination as kids get to test their knowledge about the characteristics of different animals. This is very interactive, and good for story time.

Pigs don't have stripes, zebras do! But...Does a mouse have a green spiky tail? Does a monkey have antlers? Turn the pages and you'll find out!
