‘Where’s The Baby?,’ by Britta Teckentrup.

Britta Teckentrup has already brought us two beautiful ‘spotting books’ and now we’re lucky enough to have a third to enjoy.

Renowned for her gorgeous repeated pattern style, reminiscent of a rather exclusive wallpaper design, Britta brings us spreads with a hidden secret – a baby animal is hiding with its parent somewhere on the page. All you have to do is spot it.

The accompanying rhyming text adds an element of read aloud fun and introduces readers to new vocabulary and animal names.

I love this book because it encourages young children to sustain concentration and persevere in order to receive the reward of spotting the baby animals.  A real sense of satisfaction can be gained from finally finding the illusive creature.  It also encourages conversation between adult and child as they hunt together.

Another stunning book from Britta!
