Letter N--Everyone has a nose, but what kind of nose do you have? This silly rhyming book shows many different types of noses and what they are used for. This is a great book for teaching rhyming words!

Great book! I read this book to kindergarten and they loved it! It talks about all the different types of noses and why people need to have a nose.

Another of the 4 that Marg bought for the upcoming grandmonster. I've never read this one before. Not bad, but not my favorite. Good pictures, but the words didn't suck me in. I do like the thick cardboard pages. ( )

This poem talks about different types of noses, uses of noses, and why we need noses.

Personal Reaction:
This was one of my sons favorite books when he was little. It also seemed to be a favorite when I read it to a group of 2-3 year olds for my service learning assignment. The illustrations are great and the rhymes flow very well.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. I could use this book to introduce a lesson on animals. We could talk about how different animals use their noses. For example, elephants use their noses to pick up water and other objects.
2. The students could draw a picture of their own nose and list its functions.

Summary: This book is about different kinds of noses. It has and explains that noses come in different shape, form, colors, people and animals.

Personal: I love all the Dr. Seuss's book. This was a very simple way of describing one of the five senses.

Classroom: When a lesson on senses is given, this is a good book to teach and show the students. You can have the students participate every time the word "nose" pops up and have them point to where it is on their body.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375824936, Board book)

"I see a nose on every face. I see noses every place!” Noses come in all shapes, colors, and sizes and are handy to have for sniffling, smelling, and . . . playing horns? This simple, sometimes silly story offers little ones a first ode to the nose and all that it does.

Noses are interesting and serve many purposes including the one of holding up glasses.
