This "uncover and discover" activity book challenges children to find animals with similar characteristics. After showing the youngster an illustration of a bunny, the following page features four, colorful flaps. Hidden behind them there's a chameleon, a pigeon, a fox and a goldfish.

Who's furry and breathes air like the rabbit? Why the fox, of course!

On the next two-page set, other similarities between the fox and rabbit are featured before you move on to the next "Who's like me?" creature - a goldfish.

This is an excellent way of introducing your child to a few similarities and differences between mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians. The illustrations are eye appealing, the colors vibrant and there's just enough information to enable the youngster to grasp some essential characteristics of each classification.
