Many animals gather together at the edge of the rain forest to play. Chameleon suggests they play hide and seek. The animals have a hard time deciding where to hide except for the chameleon. Elephant counts to ten while everyone hides. Then he seeks them out. But where is that chameleon?
The illustrations are created with a combination of painted texture and digital layering. They are gorgeous and vibrant! I love Na's unique style.
This book by Na had so much to offer for young children. First, the elephant counts to ten and you see the numbers progress on each page. Then there are a variety of animals to learn about. The pictures are not complicated for the young ones. And it is fun trying to see where the animals are since they blend into the background--especially the chameleon. And thank you to one reviewer who pointed out that Chameleon shows up on every two page spread. I went back for a second reading to find him. This will be a fun activity for the little ones. This story is simple, but the youngest ones will highly enjoy it. Recommended for ages 2-5.
