Review: Seek and Count by Yusuke Yonezu


Lift-the-flap books are not generally a favorite of librarians, but this one is nice and sturdy. One egg opens to reveal one chick, which is pretty simple and unsurprising. The next page, with the expected number two, however, has one tulip...but that tulip opens to show two butterflies!

This can quickly turn into a fun guessing game. What three things might be under the blanket? What four things could be on the road? My favorite was the six fresh potatoes, clinging to the roots of the plant!

Colors are bright, and pictures are simple and clear, happily avoiding all my board book pet peeves - and making it perfectly appropriate for your little ones!
