Where's Ellie?: Salina Yoon

What tot doesn't love hide and seek? In this 7x7" sturdy board book, totz will go seeking Ellie the elephant, who is hiding somewhere among the pages. The die cut at the right side of the book allows Ellie's trunk to be seen, leading totz onward past colorful objects. They won't find Ellie at first, but will be rewarded with each turn of a page by finding something familiar, yet unexpected. In each scene, there's a bit of Ellie peeking out, but it isn't until the last page that totz finally find her. What fun!

Another innovative book by the talented Salina Yoon. Another Yoon favorite of mine is Find My Feet, also published by Robin Corey Books.
