On a Saturday morning
Like many before
The kids were all restless.
In fact, they were bored.
It had finally stopped raining
After nearly a week
Then they had an idea,
Let's play hide-and-seek!
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy tells the story of a neighborhood hide-and-seek game and invites readers to join in! With vivid illustrations and a hearty dose of silliness, each page includes a hidden child, a seeker, and other objects for kids to find.
Can you help Rachel Green find Sue, along with one raccoon, two spoons, three mops, four flip flops?
Hide!!! is guaranteed to charm readers of all ages.

What a fun book! I can just see Mom or Dad with the kids reading and searching through the pages for the kids who are hiding in the ageless game of hide and seek and all the little objects - i.e. 2 spoons, 4 flip flops, 1 raccoon, etc. - tucked away in the illustrations. The Mom’s Choice Awards® has named Hide!!! among the best in family-friendly media, products and services. The Mom’s Choice Awards® (MCA) is an awards program that recognizes authors, inventors, companies, parents and others for their efforts in creating quality family-friendly media, products and services. I love that it is written in rhyme with a good deal of humor. "Where to go?" thought Chris Cash As he made a mad dash To hide where he'd never be found. When he saw the big tree His heart leapt with glee. To find him, don't look on the ground! The illustrations get more complicated and the hidden objects become more numerous and varied as the "story" progresses. This colorful children's book took me back to a kinder, slower, more gentle time. A time when on a summer's evening the kids were safe to run through the neighbor playing hide and seek. They were safe. They had fun. And it was good exercise. Remember how we could slip back in to "base" while the seeker's back was turned? It was always good to do that and not be found. The essence of this time of fun in a child's life was captured by the facial expressions and body language of the kids. Well done, author Jeff Foxworthy and Illustrator Steve Bjorkman.

I heard about this book about a year ago from a morning show that Jess Foxworthy was on. My son is now 2 1/2 and loves for me to read to him at night. This book is now a favorite of ours. It's recommended for ages 4 and up however my son likes to look for things in pictures. This book is great, every page you are looking for the same thing from the previous page but always add 1 more new thing to look for. this book was written very well, cute contents, great illustrations! I would highly recommend it!
