Product Description

Book Description

Peer into the jungle to discover what’s behind the tall grass, dangling from a tree, sitting amongst the leaves and lurking in the river. Three questions on each animal carefully guide the reader to seek the identity of the animal hiding in the jungle. Die-cut features on the flaps reveal further clues of furry stripes, large teeth, beaks and tails.

Nice enough book with nice drawings.

The whole page flips back to reveal the animals that are hiding.

My kids seemed to enjoy the first read through but they haven't chosen it since.

What this book lacks in pages, it makes up for in beautiful illustrations and peek-a-boo fun for children.

On turning each page, they can take time to read the text, work out what might be on the page and then delight in opening the flaps to reveal the rest of the picture.

Granted, it's not the book that you will return to every afternoon but it will stay the course and can be passed on to younger children as they become ready for a bit of an adventure.

I have since passed my copy, in mint condition, to a local charity so that they can use the money from its sale to benefit their cause.

Hide and Seek in the Jungle is a 10 page book in vibrant colours with great attention to detail. Each double page reveals a different jungle animal hidden behind flaps with cut outs and clues as to what each animal could be.

The animals and their environment are all painted but they do look like the real thing - the tiger looks like a tiger etc but they're not scary. There is so much attention to detail in each animal and backgrounds with plants, flowers, blades of grass, water, branches and clouds. On the first page with the gorillas there are even little ants on the leaves. My nephews' favourite has to be the last of the animals to be revealed with the bright blue sky and parrots with bright red, blue and yellow feathers. He also likes the tiger with its little cubs.

My nephew is just over a year and loves turning each of the pages himself although he can have a bit of trouble with these ones as they are quite thick and lifting the flaps as we read the few lines on the page so it's a great introduction to the various animals and at the same time, educational.

The final double page is actually a great inclusion with more information on rainforests and where each of the animals originates from. It then shows photos of other plants and animals found there including tarantula, snake and gecko which I wasn't expecting so be warned if you do have any phobias!

We've found in the past books with flaps tend to be thin cardboard but each flap is as thick and as big as the main pages so for a young child, they're not going to rip these off easily. The only thing I would say is some of the cut outs and edges of the flaps do have some sharp points and while the corners of the book are rounded, the flap corners are not.

It's a high quality book and easy to wipe clean after sticky fingers holding it. The sentences are quite simple too so as he gets older will be able to read it himself.

This is one of the best lift the flap books I have seen for young children. The book is a board book and each flap is page size which is very handy as I find young children often find small flaps tricky and can end up breaking them, that won't be a concern with this book.

Each page tells you a few facts about an animal and shows you part of the animal with cutouts from the flaps, children can guess the animal then open the flaps too see if they were right.

The last fact in the book is a non fiction fact page about a few animals, it doesn't really fit with the rest of the book for me but does contain some photos which is a nice contrast to the art in the rest of the book.

If I had one complaint it would be not enough pages, I would have liked a few more lift the flap pages and animals in the book.

This book is aimed at Early Years (science) and I would say it is aimed well. I'm sure my class will love hearing this story and guessing the animals when I read it to them. (age 4-5years)

I liked this book. Perhaps more importantly my three year old son did too. On each double page there is an animal hiding - a Gorilla, Tiger, Crocodile and a Parrot. Each page is covered by a large flap which has cut throughs and clues as to the identity of the animal. For example, on the Parrots page there is a cut through to reveal part of its beak, "I use my beack to smash open shells". There are three clues for each animal, before you finally lift the flap to see the animal hiding behind. At the end of the book there is a little bit that tells you about the rainforest and some of the animals that live there. Overall I thought the illustrations were first class, and that it was a good starting point to teach very yound children about animals and where they come from. The pages are made from sturdy card and the large flaps have proven durable. My only criticism is that there are only 4 animals.

Hide and Seek: In the Jungle was (I was told) an enjoyable read. Children will love the beautiful pictures, which are extremely colourful and detailed. They also fold out to enormous sizes, and are sure to keep children entertained.

The facts sections are well-written and educational, without being so dense that they become dull.

On the negative side, the book is extremely short - only 4 or 5 pictures in total. Kids will love this friendly book, but bear in mind it has a very limited shelf life!

--------------------------------------------------------

The Good

Beautiful pictures
The 'Facts sections' are educational but still fun
Pictures folded out very big - exciting, lots of detail

The Bad

Quite short - only 4 or 5 pictures: becomes boring quickly
