Heads and Tails

author/illustrator: John Canty

Would you be able to guess an animal if you could see only its tail? Clever clues and a turn of the page reveal its identity. Whether the answer is a slow-moving turtle or a slippery-scaled snake, kids will delight in sharpening their creature-identification skills. Fine-lined illustrations adapted from nineteenth-century artwork give this book a classic feel, paired with soft watercolors and simple, colorful text to keep young eyes entertained. A perfect read-aloud for little ones who love animals and for those who love showing that they know the answer.

White fluffy tail or blue-green feathers? Hop, slither, and fly from one page to the next in this fun guessing book.
