Cute little book that 1-2 year olds will love. My younger son is currently at the age (almost 2) where he loves any book that lets him identify animals or animal sounds.
Nice rhymes. Cute art. Fun and silly.

Poised with his beak opened wide, a bossy chicken demands your attention as soon as you open the book.

"Hey! I’m a chicken. Yes, it’s true. Tell me! Tell me! What are you?"

Boynton cleverly introduces a different animal on each page. This question and answer format will help your little ones with animal recognition and encourages feedback. The questions appear in regular sized type and the answers are in a tiny font, which guarantees a high low rhythmic sound.

"Are you a cow? No. Are you a dog? No."

The chicken’s playful inquiry continues and little readers will learn to recognize a cow, dog, frog, duck and many more animals. Just when you’ve got the pattern going, Boynton provides a fun twist by introducing two larger than life hippos. The text format changes and your little one can now investigate size.

"You are not a hippo. You are small. They are big."

The illustrations are simple and inviting in Boynton’s trademark style. The puzzled look from the animal’s zany eyes provides suspense persuading you to turn the page to see what is next. Boynton’s ending wraps up nicely with a positive message reinforcing that it’s great to be ourselves.
