First sentence: We're at the farm with Harry today. And hide-and-seek is what he wants to play.
Premise/plot: Harry--the hippo--loves, loves, loves to play hide and seek. Harry has trouble hiding, that is, he's always super-easy to find. But he doesn't mind being easy-to-find, he just loves the game. There are four Hide and Seek Harry books so far. I've also reviewed Hide and Seek Harry Around the House and Hide and Seek Harry At the Beach.
My thoughts: I liked this one. I liked the art. I think it's a silly book to read with children. It's fun to "find" Harry on all the pages. I like the rhyme as well.
First sentence: We're playing hide-and-seek at the playground...and Harry's hiding. Can he be found? Is he by the seesaw, lying low? Is he on the swing set? Where did he go?
Premise/plot: Another hide-and-seek adventure with Harry the hippo. This time Harry is playing with his friends at the playground. Though there is much to do at the playground, Harry, of course, wants to play hide and seek. If you've read any of the other books in this series, you know exactly what to expect. These are simple and predictable and quite silly.
My thoughts: I like all four books in this simple series. The books are cute and silly and would be good for sharing with young children.
