Animals hide in plain sight in this oversized look-and-find board book.
Creatures from all over the animal kingdom reside here. Different mosaics made up of animals and elements from their habitats appear on each left-hand page, while separate pictures of each animal appear on the right-hand page. Little readers are asked to find ladybugs, ducklings, chickens, and more across a wide variety of settings. The mosaics are fairly complex, with the rather angularly composed animals blending in to similarly colored scenes. The Arctic scene, colored with grays, whites, and light blues, is particularly tricky. Each scene has an animal that appears more than once, increasing sequentially from one to 10 across the book. Little ones will be asked to find seven earthworms, eight meerkats, then nine mice—all different from one another—and so on. The large book is ideal for long car rides and home use but is a bit cumbersome for settings such as doctors’ visits and grocery carts.
An adorable and engaging brain teaser. (Board book. 2-4)
