The patterned repetition of the title questions and the identifiable images will make even pre-readers feel competent; they’ll need only just a little help with the habitat names to master the text.

Synopsis

What am I? I am a lion./Where am I? I am in a grassland.

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.

Inpsired 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.
