Find the Duck by Stephen Cartwright
Find the Duck is a wonderful hidden object book, that will help to encourage older infants and toddlers to scan pages and promote understanding of basic concepts such as prepositions (e.g., in, on under, above, behind, beside, etc.) The idea behind these simply illustrated pages is that the little yellow duck is hiding on every page and it is our job to see if we can find him. The pictures are bright and colourful, but not overly busy, so it's fairly easy to spot the duck. This is a fun challenge for younger children that will help them feel successful! The book is a bit large for little hands to comfortably hold, but the pages are sturdy and the text is simple so it makes it a winner in my mind!
