Where’s the Pair? by Britta Teckentrup
Courtney wrote about The Odd One Out by Britta Teckentrup and I bought it immediately – Otto loves ‘looking’ books and particularly ones where he can get involved. I love them too – these moments sitting and chatting to my 3-year-old over a book are all too precious. How they chat at this age is so great isn’t it? And these moments are made even more enjoyable when the book is as pleasing to the eye as with Ms. Teckentrup’s illustrations. That’s why I was happy to see this new book Where’s the Pair? released.
As with ‘The Odd One Out’ each page is adorned with a vibrant pattern of animals and a little rhyme questioning us to find the pair. And it’s not too easy — I even found the pairing a bit tricky. After Otto and I had read it I found him later sitting with his older sister trying to find the pairs – maybe she also enjoys these quiet moments and chats with our little one?
The book is available from Amazon (UK and US ).

Thanks for this great review! We’re really glad your enjoyed it. We’d love to use these pics on our Where’s the Pair gallery on our website if you’re okay with that?
Of course! go ahead and use the pics! We love the book.
How funny, I nearly bought this book last week! But I’m TRYING to resist buying every single book I want to buy the kids. We’re trying to simplify our lives and pare down our belongings!! (Your book reviews are not helping. 😉 ) xxx
Mo – I love Britta’s work! This one is on my wish list – it just hasn’t come out here yet. I highly recommend another of her books: Busy Bunny Days. The story and pictures are so engaging…we notice something new each read!
Haha! I even started paring from the photos you shared! xxx
Thanks for sharing this new book! My family and I LOVE all of Britta’s books. My husband is from Italy, and so we speak (and read) to our daughter in Italian. It’s been a huge plus (although more difficult than I thought) for us to find beautiful, simple children’s books in Italian. We currently love Animal 123 (Animali 1,2,3) and Animal Spots and Stripes (Macchie e strisce) for their simple stories and sweet illustrations. The lift-the-flap books are perfect for our 15 month-old daughter, but it’s wonderful to hear that there are even more Britta books we can enjoy together as she gets older!
