Ears, Nose, Eyes... Surprise!
This engaging outing is all about the five senses. An illustrated baby with bright, brown eyes; sticking-out ears; and a quizzical expression provides clues to identify mystery shapes. “My ears hear... a strumming sound.” Readers may recognize a guitar in the black shape set against a light green background. When the boy says “My tongue tastes... something sweet,” the shape resembles a birthday cake. All of the objects appear in color on a final spread as part of a surprise. Jones’s silhouetted objects and bright backgrounds catch the eye, and the guessing element invites active reading. Ages up to 3. (Sept.)
