Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
In another transition from picture book to board book, Baker's book succeeds. Hide-and-seek is a favorite childhood game, so kids will have no problem understanding the fun Baker's colorful snake is having. He blends into the scene--and becoming part of a hat, hiding among balls of yarn, and even pretends to be the frosting on a cake. Sometimes, he isn't that easy to spot. Interactive entertainment and an amusing rhyming text combine to create a delightful book. 1999, Red Wagon/Harcourt, Ages 1 to 3, $5.95. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot—Children's Literature

Detailed, colorful pictures are fun for kids to explore while looking for the snake on each page. Question is, can the adult find it before the child??? GREAT book
