Toddler—The distinguishing feature of this foot tall board book is the large die-cut circular hole, just right for toddlers to hold up and have their faces shine through. The pages are bedecked with Asch's signature simply outlined animal shapes (17 in all) and declarative sentences, such as "I can squeak like a mouse" and "I can oink like a pig." The very last page for little ones to peek through depicts a flower accompanied by the empowering message "I can be anything!" Something to roar about.
Great for adults and children to share, taking turns playing the parts of various animals. For more fun, have a mirror handy so kids can be delighted by their own transformations.―Kirkus Reviews

As each page is turned, a new experience awaits. Your child will delight in becoming a strong roaring lion, a fuzzy brown bear, a snapping turtle, a hooting owl or even a sly old snake, just to name a few. There are 17 opportunities to get imaginations perking and your child to become the star of the book.
The really unique fun part is that the animal's faces are substituted by your child's peeking through a four-inch circular cut-out and making faces and sounds like the animal he is supposed to represent. What an interesting and challenging way to teach little ones about a variety of animals in his world.
The final page inspires your child to be anything he wants with the message, "I Can be anything!" It includes a mylar mirror that reflects those words right back at your child. Brilliant marketing for sure. I love this idea suggested by the author himself...
"this book would work beautifully for a creative activity with preschoolers or kindergarteners. It could be used one on one with a child or could be passed around the circle allowing each child to take a turn with the next animal. "
Whilst simple in content it is rich in fun. The illustrations are clear, brightly coloured stylistic representations of the animals that children will quickly learn to recognise. I like the way the sentences refer to actions actually associated with the creatures, helping children learn about these. The final illustration is of a flower with its centre missing and the sentence ‘I can be anything!’ - a brilliant ending leaving this page with endless possibilities!
Overall this is a great board book to share with youngsters!
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
This book features a nice large sized hole where all the faces of the animals should be. This allows for you or your child (or both!) to imitate the animal on any given page.
I really like this one because it introduces children to a lot of different animals. It also allows them to practice animal noises or behaviors (such as a snake sticking out its tongue).
I Can Roar Like a Lion is sure to lead to a very fun and interactive storytime. Be ready to have a lot of laughs!
