",,,a superb example of a board book with a clever kind of built-in layering. At its simplest, it presents basic hues (green, red, orange) that appear through peek-a-boo windows cut in uncomplicated, easily traced shapes (leaf, apple, pumpkin). Each field of color, however, also contains tiny camouflaged figures. Hunting for them—helped along by cues written for parents (“Can you find . . . 3 seahorses?”)—toddlers will practice the important skill of visual discrimination.” Wall Street Journal
"Appropriately difficult for this age group, this board book gives youngsters excellent practice with figure-ground perception". School Library Journal
