Book review: Hide and Seek Counting and Hide and Seek First Words. Written by Joshua George and illustrated by Lemon Ribbon.

Tiny Town Books are a series published by Imagine That books. They are fun, sweetly illustrated by Lemon Ribbon and both my girls absolutely love them. There are a selection of books available in the series now including felt books, Tiny Town Picnic Fun , perfect for travel and jigsaw books, Tiny Town Let’s go outside, which encourages lots of play and puzzle practise. Their latest publications are hide and seek, small sized board books which are perfect for my 2 year old.

Hide and Seek Counting is an inviting read all about number. The book visually shows readers a quantity of objects encouraging young ones to apply their counting skills. To find out if you’re right and to see what that digit looks like, readers have to pull a large tab to reveal the answer.

The hide and seek element makes this read an entertaining one and the objects shown on each page are interesting and engaging. Readers are also sure to recognise particular animal characters from the books in the series.

Hide and Seek First Words is a great rhyming read aloud that gets readers to think about the clues that are presented to them.

The large tabs reveal the answer and also adds extends the illustration from each page. As well as being a great book to use for exploring vocabulary, it is also a wonderful one to use for rhyming fun. The books are recommended for 2 years and up and would make lovely gifts. Each book is light and small so would make a great book to take whilst out and about.
