Hide and Seek
Hide and Seek: A Flip-Flap Book, by Jez Alborough
(Walker Books, $17.99)
Another fun lift-the-flap offering from the author of Washing Line, this book introduces one of a child's favourite games -- hide-and-seek (or peekaboo for the younger crowd). Frog is playing hide-and-seek with his friends, and he needs help finding them -- they're all hiding behind the flaps, of course!
This book provides a fun way for parents to get their children involved in reading, as they'll love flipping the flaps from side to side to spot the hidden animals. Featuring a variety of different environments, from the riverbed to the forest to the desert and beyond, it's great for showing children different animals and where they live in the wild. It's a great choice for older babies and toddlers, but older children will enjoy the interactivity of the book as well. Fun for reading aloud or on their own, children will love playing hide-and-seek between the pages of this book with the animals.
