Sloths, Monkeys, Parrots, and More!

Our children’s librarian recommended that I check out Riddle Diddle Rainforest by Diane Z. Shore and Deanna Calvert. This interactive flap book provides readers with rhyming riddles that they are supposed to solve. Using the clues, children are able to guess who is hiding under the flaps.

This book has five different animals hiding in it. Monkeys, sloths, tree frogs, parrots, and boa constrictors are all hiding out in this colorful riddle book. If your child is scared of snakes, you may want to skip this book or at least skip the last two pages.

Riddle Diddle Rainforest contains 150 words which makes it a longer board book than my ten month old likes to sit through. The riddles are about twenty words long which makes this book better suited to toddlers and younger children. Obviously my ten month old son does not understand the book, but I would absolutely re-read this book to him when he is between ages 2 and 5.

This book is an excellent choice for kids who enjoy solving riddles. My six and eight year old both used this book to practice their reading this morning. This book contained an ideal mix of easy to read words and more challenging words, such as “dweller” and “victor.”

I would recommend this book for children who are ages 2 to 5 years old.
