PreS-Gr 2—A fun seek-and-find book featuring animals of all kinds. The mixed-media illustrations are reminiscent of the illustrator's Animal 123 and Animal Spots and Stripes (both Chronicle, 2012). Each tessellation has one variant for readers to find: a turtle in his shell, a bird with a worm. Each puzzle is challenging but not to the point of frustration. The brief rhyming text is well paced, making it easy to read aloud, though this will be a one-on-one share rather than a group read. There are many picture puzzle books available, but this one stands apart because of its whimsical illustrations and well-written rhyming clues.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY
Page after page of flying, jumping, marching, parading, and moseying animals challenge readers to spot the one among them doing something ever-so-slightly different than the others. Somewhere between all the double-humped camels is a cousin with a single hump. One of the monkeys leaping by has taken a fall and wound up with an arm and a knee wrapped in bandages. A lone caterpillar admires the gorgeous rainbow array of butterflies streaking past. Accompanying each illustration, packed end to end with friendly animals, is a short rhyming verse that tells you who to look for, and each picture has its own tone-defining color scheme and design concept, keeping the experience fresh with each turn of the page. Little eyes will be very eager to spot each hidden figure and will find an appropriate level of challenge doing it (except, perhaps, when they have to gaze into 1,000 hypnotic pairs of lemur eyes). Whether they’re sharing this in one-on-one reading time or as a fun group activity, young animal lovers will be fully engaged. Preschool-Grade 1. --Jesse Karp

The rhymes are cute, and the images are unique. It's pretty tricky to find the "odd one out" in each image, but of course once your kid has solved it they'll be able to do it again very quickly the next time around. With my three year old, and actually until she was well into her fourth year on this planet, the fact that she knew where the odd one out was didn't discourage her from picking this book off the shelf at story time. She really enjoyed listening to the rhymes and also trying to "race" me to point out the different image on the page.
The book quality is great. We got it in hardcover. This is a fun book. I would recommend it to anyone with kids who are between the ages of say 2 and 5. Will probably need to pass this one on before she turns six though as the novelty will surely wear off by then.
