HIDE!!! – “A clever kids’ book that will engage both adults and children”

HIDE!!!  by Jeff Foxworthy

(Illustrated by Steve Bjӧrkman)

Beaufort Books, New York 

I never read to my grandkids. Instead I have them tell me the story prompted by the pictures in the book.  Hide feeds this kind of interaction. It’s about a group of kids playing hide and seek, but here’s the wonder: viewers of its lively illustrated pages are challenged to find so many mops, spoons, painted cups, etc., in each picture before them.

The number of these items escalates, and finding them will make you wonder if you are as smart as a 4 to 7 year old (the author hosts that hit TV program, “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”). A little pricey at $18, but this will be one of your child’s or grandchild’s instant favorites. It captures the essence of childhood fun in a form your kids will go back to again and again.

Turn off the TV and the video games. Let the real joy, of books, begin!
