“I love taking pictures of animals…Sometimes the animals run or fly away… I only get pictures of their butts…”
And so begins this humorous animal trivia book formatted into a “Guess that butt” game. For each photograph of a butt, the reader is invited to look at the photograph and its clues (tail, feathers, fur, coloration, size) and see if they can recognize the animal it belongs to. The next page will display a photograph of the whole animal along with a short informational paragraph about the animal (and how they use their behind).
Children ages 2 through 9 will find the vocabulary and length right up their alley, but this nonfiction title is perfect for both, the young and old, who enjoy a bit of fun thrown in with their facts. The large photographs and game show style makes this the perfect read-a-loud for larger groups as well as one-on-one sharing. This is the book animals lovers didn’t even know they have been waiting for.
