Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Two books in the Slide 'N' Seek series by Chuck Murphy also feature sliding covers and pages. In Colors, children slide open a color square to discover an animal associated with that color. For example, a red square with different shaped circles provides clues to the ladybug hidden underneath; an orange striped square slides open to reveal a tiger. In Counting, a large numeral accompanies the number spelled out on each page. Youngsters slide open the numeral five to discover five jeweled rings and underneath 10, the last page, are 10 blocks with the numbers 1-10, so they can review the numbers all over again. (Mar.)

From Kirkus Reviews

This entry in the Razzle Dazzle series (which covers Numbers, Shapes, and Opposites as well) may show that all that glitters is not necessarily captivating. Every page shows traditional objects associated with a specific color: a red strawberry, a yellow duck, a blue sky. A few of the items are less standard: A pink eraser and blue jeans are among the more novel choices. One picture on each page is backed with tinsel paper, e.g., the red truck looks as if it has a metallic paint job. Babies may enjoy the ``multimedia'' experience--the paper is not only glittery-looking, but slick to the touch and makes a crinkling noise when poked. Otherwise, the book is a little short of a complete rainbow. (Board book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

The pictures and colors are vibrant!!

My daughter loves to pull the sliding pages and find the objects like the red ladybug and the black and white panda.

Format: Board book
This book is a big hit in our home because it gives toddlers the chance to "do it myself." This colorful board book has pages with animal drawings that slide out. Each page has a color with a printed texture (e.g. a red page with darker red dots on it). At the top or side of the page is a solid tab that allows the child to pull out a picture of an animal with that same texture on it (e.g. the red page has a ladybug hidden in it like the one printed on the cover of the book).
This book is a favorite because the sliding mechanism is very well made, so my daughter is generally able to work the pages herself with little or no help from me. She recognizes the colors and textures on each page and names the animal before she pulls the picture out and then really enjoys demonstrating that she was right. All of the pages are very sturdy and well made, so it's hard for little fingers to damage it.
Excellent book!!

I found this book through one of those "So you want to..." lists. After reading the reviews, I decided to add it to my granddaughter's gifts for her first birthday. She LOVES it! The combination of color and the sliding pages engage her fully and she will look at it over and over again. She takes it with her all of the time. I am very picky about children's books (English degree, don't you know:) and I just think this one is GREAT!!

I am soon going to need to purchase another copy of this book. My daughter loved this book from the time she was nine months old because of the "surprise" value of having a matching colored animal pop out of the page for each color. It's fun to read the colors, and then slide out the hidden animal and read the animal name. It also encourages the baby to say the animal name with you--one of her early words was after I said "green" and she whispered "fro(g)". Now that she is 13 months old, it is still her favorite book, but now she slides the pages for herself. The book is sturdy, but I will still probabaly have to buy another copy with this intense use. I am also ordering other books in the series.

If you are looking for a book about colors, or you are interested in a book that has sliding features, there are plenty of other books out there that are MUCH better than this one. The pictures are nothing special and the quality is terrible. We got this as part of a 4-book box set, and all the books came apart rather easily. My daughter was pulling a slide when it ripped through the page and I was unable to repair it so it could work again. The pages themselves got worn fairly easily as well. Once the slides fall apart and tears the page, the book is pretty worthless. I don't recommend these books. Our local dump now has our copy.

This book is very simple, yet it is very educational, but more important, FUN for my 11-month-old granddaughter. She loves all books, but especially ones that she can interact with. The pullouts on this book are excellent...very strong, yet easy for a young child to move.The pictures and colors are vibrant!! She absolutely loves this book...it is a must to own. Purchase at least one of these great board books by Chuck Murphy...there are 3 others...Shapes, Counting and Opposites. I gave the exact same review to the other book she has in this series, "Counting" because it is also a great book to own.

My 1 year old loves this book! The pages are very sturdy and the pictures are bright and colorful. The sliding pages are constructed in way that allows small fingers to operate them with ease. My daughter loves to pull the sliding pages and find the objects like the red ladybug and the black and white panda. Can't wait to try Slide N Seek Shapes!

From 9 to 21 months this remains my son's favorite book. Buying 2nd copy because it's the only book he's worn out, and we've got dozens of books. He really responds to the shiny stuff.
What actually appeals to kids is what matters, even if the official editor finds the choice of objects for each color to be mundane.

Purchased this book based on good reviews; and heartily agree. My daughter is now 2 and still enjoys the book; pulling out the sliding pages & naming the pictures and colors, not to mention the practicing of motor skills! An excellent addition to your bookshelf or as a gift.
