Chihiro Takeuchi creates another original and innovative board book with her intricate papercut artwork.
Can you peek through the die-cuts to find one armadillo, or two camels or five juicy banana's. There's a world of discovery and delight on every page of this wild search and find book.
"The eight seek-and-find pages in this book turn learning the alphabet into a fun activity. Three upper- and lowercase letters are introduced at the time. When kids flip the page, they’re challenged to find objects, animals and shapes that correspond to those letters (one armadillo, two bicycles, and so forth) hidden in an artsy collage."

"In this alphabet/counting book disguised as a seek-and-find, a child can first peek through a die-cut shape for a glimpse of what will become an entire page of chunky, little, animal cracker–like silhouettes in pleasing colors; think gift wrap. The name of every silhouetted object begins with one of the featured letters, and newbie counters are encouraged to find, for example, one Earth, two eggs, three dolphins, four fish, and five dragonflies .
VERDICT Endearingly rendered objects fit together like puzzle pieces with the letters that start them and beg to be examined closely and tallied up."
