Who's Looking at You? a review
Eighteen 8"x8" pages feature eighteen different eyes peering out at the reader. Each eye is on a flap nearly as big as the page with a narrow, brightly colored frame surrounding it. Open the flap to see "who's looking at you," and learn a few facts, focused, not surprisingly, on the eye.
SnailThe snail is actually one of the easier eyeballs to recognize. Very young children won't find many easy guesses as it's surprisingly difficult to determine some animals from a single eye, but slightly older kids will have fun with Who's Looking at You? Even the adults at the library were enjoying this one! Some of the featured eyeballs are those of the gorilla, wolf, cuttlefish, chameleon, and blue-spotted grouper. The butterfly is a bit of stretch - the photo features the "fake" eye that some butterflies sport on their wings to fool predators. The inside back cover contains eight additional eyes for guessing, with small flaps hiding nothing more than the animal's name.
How did this hungry snail find the leaf? Snails can't see very well - they mostly depend on touch and smell to find their way. But most snails do have eyes, right at the ends of two bendable tentacles called eyestalks.
The photography is beautiful and the guessing is fun!
