Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational and just couldn't wait to try it out with L. First we had to order the book Where Else in the Wild? More Camouflaged Creatures Concealed … and Revealed by David M.
Schwartz from the library. This book has great pictures of different animals totally camouflaged in their environmet. It has a game-like feel as it gives the reader clues in a poem to help to detect the animal. On the inside flap of the page it shows the outline of the creatures plus
gives a ton of info about the actual animal. L loved this book and some of them were so tricky it took her a while to find them. She was so eager to turn the page and find out if she guessed correctly.
After reading the book together I asked L to get all of her animals. She was super excited when I told her to hide them "camouflage style" while I closed my eyes (and nursed the baby, oh ya multi tasking!) Once she had hidden a ton of animals it was my turn to try and find them.
She even packed a bunch of animals in her backpack this past week for a trip to her Aunty's in Vancouver to play the game with her!
