Sturdy flaps and simple texts combine with friendly artwork to make this a fantastic first book for children who are just starting to talk.
As all parents know, little children just love to be asked to make animal sounds. So a flap book in which they can spot the animal’s tail, lift the flap to reveal the complete creature, and then make its noise is guaranteed to be a winner!
About the Author
Sebastien Braun is the author-illustrator of the companion books Peekaboo Baby and Who’s Hiding. A young artist who studied fine arts at the University of Strasbourg, France, he now lives in London.
In this refreshingly simple lift-the-flap offering, friendly animals play hide-and-seek all around the farm. ... The very simple text, easy-to-manage lift-the-flap fun, and the focus on farm animals and their sounds make this chunky offering a solid choice for babies and toddlers —Kirkus Reviews Online
Light humor has a tangible presence in Braun’s digital images as cats, rabbits, sheep, and other animals stare expectantly at the flaps, as if anxiously waiting for readers to lift them. Questions drive the guessing-game aspect of the book: “Who’s that in the barn?” reads the opening scene; the brown hoof, black-and-white spotted flank, and tiniest hint of a pink udder let readers hazard a guess before they lift the flap and find out for certain. —Publishers Weekly
