Whose Nose? (16pp.; $7.95; Sept.; 0-316-75933-3): “Whose nose?” is the question appearing on the lefthand page, while on the right a nose is on display, with its owner hidden by a flap. Some of the noses, rendered in super-saturated colors, are a snap to identify, e.g., the pig’s snout is an early give-away, which will encourage children. The rhino’s nose, later on, isn’t so easy. The mouse’s nose and dog’s nose share features, so readers will want to really look at the animals. A handsome, participatory, and potentially thought-provoking early natural history. (Picture book. 3-5)
