Review #96: Hide by Jeff Foxworthy (Children's Book)

Hide !!! Jeff Foxworthy
Genre: Children's Book, ages 4-8
Publisher: Beaufort Books
(Copy compliments of publisher. Thank you!)

Description from Amazon:

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.

My Thoughts:

When the opportunity comes up to review a children's book, I usually jump at the chance. Having at toddler who loves to read stories, I am always looking for new stories to read at night time.
Though this one was cute and colorful, I would not recommend it for a bedtime read. There is a lot of activity going on on each page and it requires a bit of attention and collaboration on the part of the reader. It was a little over the head of my two year old though we did scale it down a bit and he did enjoy it. I liked the seek and find on each page. That was fun. I like the colorful illustrations and the neighborhood feel of friends and community.

Rating: 4 stars/6 stars
Definitely for a bit older reader like it says. 4 years to maybe 6 years, in my opinion. When I saw the picture book format, I automatically assumed it would be a "story" to read instead of seek and find. Still fun, however. It will keep an interested child entertained!

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!
