This great little book that is full of animals and has a hidden animal baby on each page. Each search begins with a rhyming paragraph about the animal followed by another rhyming paragraph that challenges the reader to find the hidden infant, sometimes with a clue. On the last page the reader's challenge is to find two, twins!
The rhyme is fun, but the pictures and patterns are the strength of this book—and a good introduction to the topic of camouflage. The patterns on the animals and the patterns created by the repetition of the animals is a camouflage that makes it quite a challenge to find those hiding little critters. Some are easily found and others are more difficult, but I found the illustration fascinating on it's own. A great little spotting book.
