Hide and Seek Alphabet: With Australian Animals

Can you find the Australian animals hiding in their habitats?

Hide and Seek Alphabet: With Australian Animals by Anna Finch is an alphabet book based on Australian animals and birds. The book features a wide range of Australian animals, from the dingo and the emu, to the kookaburra and the platypus. The book is interactive, and readers are encouraged to find the animals that are hidden in their habitats, and imitate the sounds they make. ‘Brrup. Brrup.’ drums Earnest the Emu. Can you see where he’s hiding?

While the book features plenty of well-known animals, I like that it features some lesser well-known animals too, instead of the popular kangaroos and koalas. Readers might learn about animals and birds they have never heard of, such as the galah and the quoll.

This is a fun and educational A to Z illustrated picture book for younger children. With lots of lovely alliteration, and reader participation, this is a perfect read together book for younger aged children. The book provides a great introduction to Australia and its wildlife, while at the same time teaching children the alphabet. The book will help children build vocabulary and learn the names of the animals, and the sounds they make.

The stunning illustrations by A. P. Gil capture the magnificent Australian wildlife and complement the book perfectly.

After reading this A-to-Z alphabet book of Australian animals, I am keen to learn more about Australia and its wildlife.
