Guess What?

Guess What? by Mem Fox is such a fun book! This book is about Daisy O'Grady and the reader learns about her through series of questions. Here's the first question, "Is she tall? Guess. Yes!" This question format repeats making this book an easy repetitive text for rereading. Making this a fun shared reading experience for young readers. Yes, is such a positive word for young readers to recognize. The questions send the reader on a journey possibly thinking Daisy O'Grady is a witch and luckily we find out she is not. My students are going to love this book in October and other times of the year. The illustrations are paintings done in gouache and remind me of Norman Rockwell's style.

This book was suggested in More Than Guided Reading for questioning.
