In this series we have this book and In My Pond, which I think was the first. This one is much better. In both books, my kiddo finds the puppet entertaining, but he has no interest in the pictures in 'Pond.' The collages in 'Pond' are really not that eye catching, rather they are quite monotone and homogeneous (e.g. an entire 2-page spread of gray rocks) and apart from the page of rocks, most of that book is aqua blue. However, this is not the case with THIS book. In this one, pages are different scenes with different colors and much more to look at (scenes inside the den, a snow scene outside) with a rabbit, cardinal, beetles and other creatures to search out...or leaves of different colors, pine needles and pine cones. I still think the art is lacking some depth, but this book does seem to have more personality. The text of all of these books is uninspiring and certainly would not hold an older child's attention... but for young toddlers, it's fine...we just play with the puppet, the holes in the pages, and talk about the pictures. My toddler loves this one.
