Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-A preschooler, with the help of her toddler brother, explores the concept of hiding. As in Giving and Bouncing (both Candlewick, 1993), Hughes's realistic watercolor, colored pencil, and ink illustrations are colorful and large enough to delight story hour audiences. The child observes that many things hide, such as the flowers in the ground in winter and the moon behind some clouds. "Sometimes Dad hides behind a newspaper," and so does Mom's wallet "when we're all ready to go shopping." A thoroughly charming concept book.

From Kirkus Reviews

As she did in Bouncing and Giving (both 1993), Hughes explores and extends what initially looks like a simple concept: At first, a child plays peekaboo with a toddler who's gazing raptly at the cushion from behind which she declares ``You can't see me''; then they play hide-and-seek, in which the place of concealment is a secret. Then Hughes progesses, depicting hiding as a solitary game or, in an adult's case, as a way to grab a moment of peace (``Mom hides behind a book''). Animals appear, as do things that seem to hide, like the moon, or are said to hide, like flowers in winter. To Hughes's usual complement of amiable and perceptive watercolors of the same pair of children in a variety of cozily comfortable scenes are added depictions of the pair enacting 18 more verbs on the endpapers. Also new: Chatting (ISBN 1-56402-340-0). Charming and enriching. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.

My two sons (ages 4 and 2) love for me to read this book to them because they see themselves in the children. I can relate to the mother - especially as she loses her car keys when it's time to go! What beautiful pictures! We all love this book!
