As Elephant counts from one to ten, all the animals find special places to hide. When it's time to seek, will he be able to find everyone . . . even Chameleon?

Like Na's previous books, Hide & Seek offers rich illustrations, bright colors, and a simple, spare text--all wrapped up in a beautiful kid-friendly package. Elephant counts from one to ten in big, bold numerals, and there's an additional butterfly on each spread, giving readers something to count as the story goes along. Kids will also love spotting the camouflaged chameleon on every page!

Many animals gather together at the edge of the rain forest to play. Chameleon suggests they play hide and seek. The animals have a hard time deciding where to hide except for the chameleon. Elephant counts to ten while everyone hides. Then he seeks them out. But where is that chameleon?

The illustrations are created with a combination of painted texture and digital layering. They are gorgeous and vibrant! I love Na's unique style.

This book by Na had so much to offer for young children. First, the elephant counts to ten and you see the numbers progress on each page. Then there are a variety of animals to learn about. The pictures are not complicated for the young ones. And it is fun trying to see where the animals are since they blend into the background--especially the chameleon. And thank you to one reviewer who pointed out that Chameleon shows up on every two page spread. I went back for a second reading to find him. This will be a fun activity for the little ones. This story is simple, but the youngest ones will highly enjoy it. Recommended for ages 2-5.

Simple and excellent. Reads aloud well, has beautiful illustrations, and the story holds the attention of even the squirmiest preschoolers.
