Guess Who's Hiding in the Forest? AND Guess Who's Hiding on the Farm? by Ashley Rideout- OPTIONAL

Rideout, Ashley. Guess Who’s Hiding in the Forest? AND Guess Who’s Hiding on the Farm?, BOARD BOOK. Flowerpot Press, 2015. $8.99. Various animals are hiding behind different items in these books and the narrator encourages the reader to find them all. The first page begins with one animal and another animal is added on each subsequent page. The pictures are incredibly busy (I assume to make it harder to find the animals). There are also a few textural elements like bumps and sparkles. Each book is basically the same with the exception of setting and the animals used. These books were just too much. I see the value in encouraging the reader to look for the animals and to count them as they go along, but I was disappointed in the final product. PRE-K- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
