From Great Britain

Both a memory game and a thinking game, Who's Ready to Play? will keep toddlers and preschoolers actively engaged in books and reading.
(You might also enjoy Who's Next? from the same author)

"Who's ready to play?" is just one of fifteen questions Anton Poitier asks in this delightfully educational picture quiz book, illustrated by Tracy Cottingham.

Each double page spread in the book includes simple, charming and colorful illustrations of twenty-four different animals, including giraffe, chameleon, kangaroo, dog and elephant. The animals are lined up in four rows and six columns, and each animal is in the same place on every spread (mostly) but something changes. At the top of each spread there's a question: "Who's afraid of mice?" or "Who's changed color?" or even, "Who's pooped?" which asks readers to study the animals and notice the tiny differences among them.

You can spend so much time with this book, so much time learning while you're laughing - there's hours of enjoyment in here. (And all for $9.99, which is a ridiculously good deal.) From learning the names of animals to recognizing different expressions, to identifying mood, to counting, the possibilities are almost endless.

Big and bright enough to read aloud in a group setting, this book is also fantastic for pre-readers to explore on their own. We just can't say enough good things about it.

From a parent:
Our family loves this little dinosaur, especially my 2.5 yo son. The pages are thick and won't tear (might even wipe down from your own dirty dinosaur), and the words and sing-song text make it so fun to follow along. I can't wait for my 4.5 yo to start picking up on the large text and reading aloud to us all.

From a reviewer:

This is a fun look and find book, and I really like the combination of easier questions ("Who's spraying whom?") along with harder questions that require comparing the current image to the ones that have come before ("Who's changed colors?")
This is the kind of book my almost three year old loves and he will be so proud of himself when he finds the answer on each page.
