As in his previous books, such as A Book of Sleep and Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit, Na’s illustrations are distinctive and intricate. Created by combining handmade painterly textures with digitally generated layers, his artwork contains splotches of radiant color, finely etched swirls, and contrasting patterns that somehow all work together to create a harmonious blend of cheery, inviting images. Without realizing they’re practicing their counting, young children will have fun seeking the animals in the pictures—the most challenging being the cleverly hidden chameleon.
Can you recommend other books with a hide-and-seek theme?
