In this bright and cheerful board book the reader is given choices. Is the fish going to have a pink dish or a yellow dish? Is the Jaguar going to have a blue car or a red car? By pulling a tab at the bottom or at the side of the page, the reader can change the color of a car, a dish, a brick, a tree, hats, a jug, a pair of pants and a wig. In addition, readers will find that there is a surprise message written on each of the tabs, which can only be seen when they are pulled.

Simple rhymes make the book entertaining, and they also provide excellent practice for beginner readers who are just starting to sound out words.
