A companion volume to his wildly successful Tails, Matthew Van Fleet's Heads again takes preschoolers on a touch-and-feel, pull-the-tab romp through a land of wild animals, looking at their very different heads and how they use them. It starts right on the cover, with a push-button that makes a giraffe, elephant, rhino, and alligator unscramble the letters of the title. Simple, boisterous rhymes; touchable hair, ears, and even tongues; and clever, sturdy animated features (as well as a foldout surprise ending) make this "a buoyant celebration of the animal kingdom's diversity" (Publishers Weekly).
