Who Hides Here? Footprints in the forest.
By Rachel Coverdale. Illustrated by Shelly Oyston.
Who Hides Here? Footprints in the Forest is a beautifully illustrated book. The pages with all the different animals in the forest is enough to delight any child as they discover each one through the descriptions and footprints. I think even parents will enjoy the artwork while reading this book with their child.
The story seeks out the discovery of all kinds of woodland animals from their hiding place. Who is hiding in the bushes? Who is hiding in the field? You’ll have to put your explorer mind to good use and find out.
I also loved that the author left space for a mirror or photo of the child reading the story so they too can find themselves in the forest. I thought this was a special idea and one that parents and grandparents could even get creative with and take a photo of their child when exploring a walk for the book.
I also liked that this book has a few little games at the end, like spot the difference and how many snakes of different colors. But also nice advice on the country code for young children to learn.
I would recommend this book for young children and parents to read together and take in all the beautiful images and creatures we have in our woods and around us. If you like books about animals and the adventure of finding where they are hiding, you’ll love this book.
