What the expert naturalist and author say:
“I believe an appreciation for animals must start at an early age. Children, parents and educators will all have fun reading “Who Goes With That Nose? as they guess and play their way to a strong, lifelong connection with wild animals and the natural world”.
“Meet and fall in love with the Natural World by reading and re-reading this totally enjoyable book: Who Goes With That Nose? I love the lyrical rhymes, beautiful illustrations and heart touching pages.

A Review in Awareness Magazine:
Written by Michael Kobert & Dona Donato
Illustrated by Laurie Fuller
This fun and colorful book follows young Juicy Coppertoes as she travels the world on a safari adventure. Each time she spots a nose, she tries to figure out what animal it belongs to. She encounters gorillas, an elephant, and pandas as well as lesser-known animals like a platypus and a man-drill.
Kids will have a great adventure spotting the noses and seeing the animals in their native habitats. They can also have fun finding the other animals in the pictures, and tracking down the frog on each page. They will laugh at the different hats Juicy wears for different locations.
Even the page numbers are educational and fun, written on colorful continents that identify the animals’ homes. The first page is a world map with the animals’ noses placed on their locations. The glossary has facts about each of the animals in the book. The very last page even has a place for a child to draw or paste a picture of their face, so they look like they are on safari too.
The illustrations are realistic but have the feel of a cartoon, lighthearted and friendly. They manage to contain a great deal of detail without feeling overdone or fussy.
This is the first book in a series about Juicy Coppertoes, dedicated to helping children learn about wildlife and the natural world.
Highly recommended for children through age 8.
