This book has a reader guessing who this book is really about. Although one might think some of the questions might always answer yes, there is a surprise ending that is waiting to happen.

Guess What? builds on the lesson that looks can be deceiving. For this book, teachers can read one page at a time, allowing students write or saw what they think the main character looks like, and so on. By allowing students to talk about their own ideas and perceptions of the book, teachers can open a discussion about the importance of don't judging people by their looks. ( )

Detailed illustrations with lots of hidden objects to find, and a story that's fun to read aloud with a preschooler. My daughter loves to point out the words she knows, and the repetition and question-and-answer format helps increase her knowledge. ( )

A perfect Halloween read aloud with fabulous illustrations.

Starts from long range, far away view. Each page has a question and answer bringing the reader closer to the subject and a closer view. Finally she tells the reader about the witch, and gives a clue abut how nice she is. Great real life pictures.

Through a series of questions to which the reader answers yes or no, the personality and occupation of Daisy O’Grady are revealed-she’s a witch! “A fascinating brew combining pop culture, Halloween symbols, favorite book characters, and the worthy message that even outrageously peculiar behavior may not be evil.”-Kirkus Reviews
