In Plain Sight by Richard Jackson- ADVISABLE

Jackson, Richard. In Plain Sight, PICTURE BOOK. A Neal Porter Book, 2016. $17.99. 

Sophie lives with her mom, dad, and grandpa. Each day she visits her grandpa in his room after school. He likes to hide things in his room and Sophie gets to hunt for them. It might be a straw in a picture frame or a paintbrush in a fish tank. Sophie enjoys looking for each item. One Sunday morning, Sophie hides behind her grandpa’s curtain so that he discovers her as a surprise when he wakes up. 

Jerry Pinkney’s illustrations are beautiful and readers will enjoy searching for Grandpa’s hidden items in the pictures before Sophie finds them.
