Here are two books that my son (aged 3) and I love: Who’s Hiding? by Satoru Onishi and Spot It!: Find the Hidden Creatures by Delphine Chedru.
Both books are about finding things in the pictures — ‘Who’s Hiding?’ is a bit like playing that memory game with a tray of objects, but in this book we have a line-up of animals and we have to find which one is hiding or crying or asleep. I was so surprised that my son could do it when we bought the book about a year ago as I found it quite difficult.
‘Spot It!’ is much harder but so beautiful you don’t mind staring hard at the pages to ‘spot it’ — creatures hide within graphic patterns and we often have to stare for a few minutes before finding them. I love how we both start to panic when we can’t find them immediately (he obviously takes after me with his impatience)!
Both books are available from the Babyccino Bookshop (both US and UK).
Who’s Hiding is one of our favorite too! Checked it out of the library a few times already… 🙂
We got ‘spot it’ in NY, it’s so cool!!
