Who's Looking at You? (Nature Lift-the-Flap Books)
by Stephane Frattini
Ages 3-6 18 pages Sterling August 2012 Hardcover    

Frattini’s (Tushes & Tails!) new lift-the-flap book allows children to stare into the eyes of twenty-four of nature’s unique creatures.

There are close-ups of snail eyes, a wolf eye, and a w-shaped cuttlefish eye. The color and texture of the chameleon and whale eye make them easy to identify, but the gorilla and horse eye will likely be confused for another animal. The author also includes a “trick” eye so children will learn about camouflage and protection.

Under each sturdy flap, the author briefly explains the benefits and challenges of each eye.
“Thanks to its compound eyes, the dragonfly can see above, below, to the sides, and even behind itself”
“The rhino’s eyes are small and set far back on either side of its head. If you stood still in front of a rhinoceros, it might even confuse you with a tree trunk.”
The thick pages and hard cover will reduce the likelihood of accidental rips and tears. Eight smaller flaps appear at the end of the book, but when opened, they reveal only a label and a photograph—no facts.

Who's Looking at You? captures the beauty of an eye that resembles a disco ball, and the sadness of a droopy eye.

Complementing the design of this book are the colors and fun typefaces that are incorporated into the text.
