I need to tag this as "read" "currently reading" and "to read" since I read this book to Henry every day, about 4 times a day. It's a great lift-the-flap book about little animals looking for their mothers. The illustrations are vivid and bright.

This lift-the-flap book will be destroyed so quickly by little and eager hands that the "point" of the mother animals hiding will be completely lost! Nothing is remarkable about it.
