The Can You Guess What I Am? series gets kids invested by establishing each page turn as a minor revelation. A full-bleed photo covers each right-hand page, and at such close magnification that young readers will not necessarily know what they are looking at. Add to that mystery a single clue: a line of text running below the picture. These two elements together will usually be enough to get the child shouting the right answer, which is revealed in a regular-size photo on the following page along with two or three short explanatory sentences. Positioning information as reward is a savvy tactic, made all the better by how the factoids often specifically refer to the isolated feature seen in close-up. Animals features some no-brainers (a cat, a peacock) as well as a couple more challenging ones (up close, a housefly looks rather metallic). One book alone is likely too slight to keep attention for long, but the series as a whole would make for sizable point-and-speculate fun. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Daniel KrausFrom School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 2—Created to promote literacy and critical-thinking skills, these titles are compilations of visual riddles. Each page has a close-up picture with a clue asking readers to guess what the object is. The next page reveals the answer and gives basic facts about the subject. While the overall appeal of this series is good, some of the riddles are misleading and might frustrate readers. For example, in Street , a photo of oranges and the clue "I have lots of exciting things you can buy" is supposed to suggest a farmer's market. Even sophisticated readers will have trouble guessing that one. Photo quality in some of the titles, particularly in Animals, is rather poor. Nature is the best of the lot. It has broad appeal and will be the most useful for scientific information. Instructions begin each volume and suggestions for additional activities are appended. Overall, these are serviceable additions.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA
