The numbers in this book serve a dual purpose. They represent the father counting while his son hides and the number of places the son finds to hide. It has a small plot because the game takes place while the father and son are waiting for cookies to bake. The son eventually comes out of hiding to get a cookie.

The illustrations, designed from various printing techniques on Rives paper, appear to pop and catch the viewer's eye.

This is for children younger than Julia. This would be a wonderful, fun tool for parents or teachers teaching young kids their numbers.
Even though once we got home from the library and I noticed Julia was "too old" (oh, how strange that sounds!) for this, we still read it.
And I have to give it a good rating because it's not a bad book even though it's not for us.

W actually enjoyed this because he's obsessed with the idea of hiding. A dad and a son bake cookies and while they're waiting for them to be done, the son goes to find a hiding spot with his dog. I was kind of annoyed (plus, it's confusing if you're trying to teach a toddler how to play the game) that the boy just came out of hiding at the end because the cookies were done. What a spoiler! Anyway, it does help teach counting (Dad counts out loud while son finds hiding spot).
During cookie making time it is also tome for a little boy to play hide and seek. While his father is counting he tries different hiding spots. Colorful illustrations
I really enjoyed this. It also teaches 1-10 Noah really payed attention
A wonderful counting and rhyming book!
