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.
The story is about a father and his son playing hide-and-seek and there are short, fun rhymes scattered throughout the book in accord

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.

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).

a young boy and dog play hide and seek with their dad and find 10 great hiding spots while waiting for the cookies to be done. Toddler and up. Probably more preschool.
