"Animal Hide & Seek is a reissued classic collection of three colored portraits of woodland animals, camouflaged in their natural habitats, with gentle lilting narrative including color highlighted animal names. All paintings are done in shades of sage green, browns, rust/orange, black and white. The limited palate produces a clarity and serenity in each page of woodland scenes. The animal(s) are presented on one page portrait, and then they are shown on a facing page hiding in the forest. Young readers are invited to find chipmunks, tree frogs, turtles, birds, rabbits, squirrels, snakes, salamanders, caterpillars, robins, moths, ducks, and deer, all presented in natural woodland settings with ferns, trees, leaves, branches, and grasses. The idea of animals using their coloring to hide themselves in their habitat is explored in page after page of lovingly detailed painting. Children will be encouraged to explore every detail on every page. First published in 1947, Animal Hide & Seek is a beautiful classic brought back to life for a new generation.
--Midwest Book Review
"Because wildlife does its best to hide or camouflage itself from predators (animal and human) it is never easy to spot large or small animals hidden in the grasses, brush, or bracken. Young readers are helped finding such animals in their natural settings in Animal Hide & Seek ... You will have fun playing this unusual hide and seek game, and then try it for real outside."
