Zoo Animal Mysteries for Preschoolers

December 12, 2010

A Cheeky Chiller
written by Alyse Sweeney
Capstone Press, 2010
picture book, non-fiction

I love books that make kids think! A Cheeky Chiller does just that using clues and photographs on each page.

As you read the book, you’ll get more information, or clues, to guess what is the book’s mystery wild animal. I’ll give you a few and see if you can guess.

“In the wild, you’ll find me
in African rain forests.”

“I am an omnivore. That means
I eat both plants and animals.”

The photographs show parts of this animal and it’s habitat – a mouth, a nest high in a tree, a hand.

What is this animal?  A chimpanzee!

I also appreciate that the book includes a glossary, book suggestions and internet sites for further research. How great is that?

If you like this book, you might want to consider more books in the Zoo Animal Mysteries series like:

Book Play: Take a field trip to the zoo to find the chimpanzees. (Of course, you’ll want to munch on animal crackers while you’re there.) Sing 5 Little Monkeys (or Chimpanzees) Jumping on the Bed. More fun zoo ideas at the Preschool Professor.

WIN a copy of A Cheeky Chiller. E-mail your name and address (to make book delivery faster) to with “Cheeky Chiller” in the subject line. We will randomly select one lucky winner to receive a copy of the book. Deadline for entry is midnight MST on December 19, 2010.
