About The Book

I can blend-in with a leaf or tree—changing colors, so you can’t see me!

Marcus Pfister’s playful rhymes highlight the distinctive features of each animal—from alligator to zebra—allowing little listeners to guess the name of each animal. Pfister’s bold, colorful illustrations capture each critter in all of their glory and name the animal in bold letters so children can see if their guesses were correct—a ferociously fun way to learn about the alphabet and animals.

• A basic concept book with Pfister’s identifiable style.

• Read-aloud rhymes that make learning your letters fun!

• Pfister is the bestselling author of the Rainbow Fish series.
