Can You See Me? by Ted Lewin -- OPTIONAL

Lewin, Ted Can You See Me? PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2014. $14.95.  Content: G.

Each page shows a rainforest animal hiding in its natural habitat. The accompanying text invites the reader to find the occupant. Short, simple sentences and large, clear font make this one easy for early readers, as does the repetition. However, for a book that is all about searching for animals on the page, the illustrations are oddly muddied; perhaps photographs or more realistic paintings may have worked better, and been more appealing as well.

EL (K-3) -- OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Caryn
