Search and Find Animals

When our children were younger, they loved these types of seek and find books. They were the perfect book for long car trips (or short ones), long wait times, or church. They never got tired of looking through them and finding the specific item on the page.
This hardcover, tall, and skinny book would easily slip into a backpack or diaper bag and could be pulled out while your toddler is in a stroller, car seat, or shopping cart. The pages are sturdy and resistant to tearing, but not too heavy for a small child to hold.
Each page offers two flaps that feature animals to look for. It doesn’t just name the animals but gives them a creative adjective that is often funny like a blind bat wearing dark sunglasses and holding a cane. Once you open the pages, then you are offered a full scene of animals to find your specific creature or item you are looking for. One spread is full of farm animals. Another is a scene from the Arctic. It finishes out the pages with scenes from the jungle, the safari, the ocean and the forest. It’s extremely comprehensive including numerous animals in their various habitats. You child will find the artistic octopus with his calligraphy pen and ink quite silly.
Even though this is made for younger children, older children will find the humor on the pages and notice that the hedgehog in a ball is different from just the walking hedgehog.
I’m giving this book huge praise and I can’t wait to give it to my great-niece and look for all the cute animals with her!
