Summary: This book is about different kinds of noses. It has and explains that noses come in different shape, form, colors, people and animals.

this is a good book to teach and show the students. You can have the students participate every time the word "nose" pops up and have them point to where it is on their body.

This poem talks about different types of noses, uses of noses, and why we need noses.

Personal Reaction:
This was one of my sons favorite books when he was little. It also seemed to be a favorite when I read it to a group of 2-3 year olds for my service learning assignment. The illustrations

are great and the rhymes flow very well.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. I could use this book to introduce a lesson on animals. We could talk about how different animals use their noses. For example, elephants use their noses to pick up water and other objects.
2. The students could draw a picture of their own nose and list its functions.

Another of the 4 that Marg bought for the upcoming grandmonster. I've never read this one before. Not bad, but not my favorite. Good pictures, but the words didn't suck me in. I do like the thick cardboard pages.
