I can definitely relate to this book because of the joy children can bring to your life. This is an enjoyable read that can be shared with the class in a re aloud session. The illustrations are beautifully detailed and it is a fun book to read about a mother and a child's relationship between one another.

This is a lovely story of a toddler girl hiding under a blanket. The book brings to life a unique game of hide-and-seek, something that most moms do with their children. Also, this book shows love and typical interaction between a loving mother and adoring daughter. It is such a sweet story of a child hiding under a blanket and the mother guessing what might be under the covers. I will definitely recommend this book. The text is simple; the illustrations are realistic yet warm; and, the vivid pictures bring back memories of any childhood.

I recommend this book for beginner readers. The text is simple and the illustrations are warm felled. The book is very predictable but the ending is what gives the book it's entirety of happiness and joy. This book gives an experience of its own dealing with the love of a mother to child connection. This is a great book to read then re read and never get tired of reading. Even the front cover is inviting.

I think this book is really cute and captures the innocence and playfulness of children. I think it captures the relationship between mother and child, and the popular game hide and seek. In the story, the child hides under a blanket, and the mother tries to guess what it could be under the blanket, and she wonders if it is something she needs. I thought the pictures were very well done. I loved the word repetition, and the act of predicting that it gives children when they are being read this book. The story has many punctuation marks such as exclamations, periods, and question marks, which also helps the child to learn when to use each of them in a sentence.
