Publisher's Description

What's hiding there? This charming novelty book, created with the experts at the American Museum of Natural History, is an irresistible first-concept book, combining colors and animals. Peek-a-boo holes in the flaps reveal a bit of a brightly hued creature hiding underneath, making a fun guessing game for preschoolers. Readers can lift the flaps to discover six animals cleverly camouflaged in their natural habitats, from rainforests to coral reefs. Illustrated by Caldecott Honor award-winner Steve Jenkins, Spot the Animals is sure to be a favorite.

Editorial Reviews

“A perfect lift-the-flap exploration of color and natural history. Readers are beckoned to spot various animals of different hues that nestle behind die-cut flaps that simulate their natural habitat. Hyper-realistic collagist Jenkins is at his best here, depicting several unusual creatures, such as a ghost crab, a giant stink bug and an emerald tree boa, which are hidden behind grass and leaves respectively. The simple text queries readers directly on each page--“Can you spot the blue animal?” (or purple or orange)-thus reinforcing the unifying theme of color. Readers reveal the hiding animal by opening the sturdy flaps, which have nicely rounded edges for little fingers and allow hints of the animal's color to poke through the die-cut holes. Just enough for the audience, there is one sentence of factual information for each creature per spread. The last two pages review the colors and animals depicted in a graphically clean layout. This peekaboo expedition is a delightful introduction to the animal kingdom for budding young naturalists. (Board book. 2-4)” --Kirkus Reviews
