Who Sank the Boat? by Pamela Allen

In Who Sank the Boat?, a motley group of farm animals decide to go for a boat ride on a little row boat. But in a twist to the usual narrative style, before the story continues, the reader is told that the boat will sink, and is asked to guess who caused it.

So, one by one, we see the animals get on the tiny boat and struggle to balance themselves — and all but one of them succeed. This is a fun book that introduces the idea of making predictions. The ending may be somewhat obvious to parents, but kids will enjoy the little twist, which reminds us not to judge things/people by their appearance.

Do check out this hilarious movie-style trailer for the book:
