Uses the same signature format and style as the series' previous titles. The question "What boat am I?" and a linked written clue invites kids to lift the first portion of the folded page to reveal another clue and more of the featured boat, and then a final fold-out shows the entire vessel. Fold-out on the final spread reveal a bright and bustling harbor scene with all the featured boats. Those featured are: sailboat, tugboat, ocean liner, rowboat, ferry, houseboat, and barge.

Praise for the Giant Fold-Out Book series:

Praise for Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow?:
*"Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind. Clear a space on the shelves for this one." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
