Majestic paintings by Caldecott Honor winner Ted Lewin illustrate a guessing game that fosters an appreciation of both art and science, while introducing animals in the five major biomes: grassland, desert, forest, tundra, and water. Inspired by his many travels, classically inspired compositions communicate the regal magnificence of five stunning animals: lion, camel, tiger, reindeer, and sea otter. The story ends with a painting of a child and text that reads: I am a boy. I am on the beautiful earth. An I LIke to Read(R) book. Guided Reading Level C.

Praise For What Am I? Where Am I? (I Like to Read)

"[Lewin's] animals bristle with photo-realistic fur, and they are captured in wonderfully textured environments and positions that make them seem to breathe on the page. . . . an excellent choice for preschool read-alouds."—Booklist
"The short, simple question-and-answer sentences lend themselves to beginning readers trying to boost their skills. The pencil and watercolor illustrations are naturalistic and finely detailed."—The Horn Book
"The patterned repetition of the title questions and the identifiable images will make even pre-readers feel competent . . . a natural history for the very young."—Kirkus Reviews
