Storytime: What Do You Do With A Tail Like This?

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? PB takes children on an exploration of animal body parts. On each page a specific body part of different animals is shown. For example, the first page shows the eyes of five different animals and asks the reader, "What do you do with a nose like this?" Turn the page and the reader is told how each animal uses their nose. This pattern continues through the book with eyes, feet, tails, and ears. At the end of the book, more information is provided for each animal which is a wonderful springboard to encourage students to do independent research on one (or more) of the animals presented in the book.
