Taro Gomi: Wiggle and Hide and Seek

Play and reading go hand-in-hand with two new works from Taro Gomi. It's a delight just to have more fun imagery from this master, right?

Wiggle has a clever hole drilled through the entire work. By putting a finger into the hole, the reader can make the cat wiggle its tail, the elephant swing her trunk, and the crocodile flash his fang. Giggles will abound.

Hide and Seek is a first seek and find board book. On the left side of the spread is a question and an object to be found in the right side of the page. Totz will be challenged to find the glove hidden on the rooster, the crocodile hiding a toothbrush, and the turtle hiding a scooter.

Enjoy these two releases originally published in Japan. Your totz will experience the fun of reading.
