Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-This book is a visual treat for budding zoologists. The oversize, boldly graphic volume showcases a wide range of animals and interesting facts about them, all hidden beneath flaps of black-and-white animal silhouettes and paw prints, cutouts, and, in one really attractive spread, richly painted patterns of animal hides. It has pop-up figures beneath, truly making it the apex of the book. One pair of pages has the animals tucked under black tabs punched with eye holes through which the critters peek. The facts are short, simple statements, and their randomness contributes to the hide-and-seek spirit of the volume. One can't be sure what creature or tidbit of information is waiting beneath the next flap. A stunning departure from the typical introductory volume about animals, this must-have will inspire a second look. And a third and a fourth.-Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

I read about this book in a review by the Wall Street Journal Weekender addition. Every weekender edition includes kids book reviews. The review was outstanding and made the book sound so good, I wanted to buy a copy for myself. Instead, I bought a copy for my two great-nieces who are 5 and 7 years old. My niece (their mom) called me the day they got book and told me they were entranced by it. The older one liked it so much she took it to bed with her.

It is an interactive book with fold outs, pull tabs and great illustrations. It has interesting obscure facts about animals and is perfect for this age range. While I have not had the chance to read it myself, they promised to bring it over so I could read it to them (or with them since I have been told I am just a bid kid.)

Anyway, another great book review by the Wall Street Journal. The book gets 5 stars from me because it made Hanukkah special for my two great nieces.

I heard about the book from a blog. What a great surprise and treat. I ordered two the first time one for me one for my sister. She in turned ordered two more for gifts for grand children and I did the same. What a fabulous gift and visual for the eye. My son would say Sweet.

Great book, beautifully made and very creative. Definitely, buy it! You won't be disappointed. It's appropriate for a child as young as 2 or 3, with adult supervision.

I bought this book for my nephew. He is really enjoying it. There are many flaps to lift inside that reveal information about the various animals in the book. However, it is not a toddler type lift the flap book.
