When I was little (okay, not just then) I was fascinated by “lift-the-flap” picture books. This one is an entertaining story for toddlers (and their parents) featuring a puppy who is looking for a birdie. As he looks in a variety of potential hiding places – in the pond, in a burrow, under a leaf – he doesn’t find a bird but he does find all kinds of other cute creatures who live in those places. Finally, of course, he locates the birdie – spoiler alert – in a nest!
The author, who is also the illustrator, fills this 14-page book with bright colors and cute animals. The thick board pages will be easy for children to hold.
Evaluation: This book is rated for kids 0-3 years. It is perhaps a reflection of my mental age that I loved it as well. As an extra bonus, kids will learn something about animal habitats.
