A little girl explores the many ways and occasions of hiding—inside and outside, with friends and with pets and toys, for fun and for security—in this captivating and comforting picture book. Hiding gets right to the heart of what makes children so love to hide!

“I am very good at hiding.
I hide when it’s too noisy.
I hide when it’s too quiet.
Some days I just want to hide by myself.”

As she explores the world, a little girl finds that she can hide wherever she looks. From leaf piles to laundry baskets, these places make her feel safe and secure in a busy world. But the best part about hiding? It’s being found!
With fresh and colorful artwork, Kate Pugsley captures the many ways children feel about hiding with sensitivity, humor, and most of all, love.

Hiding is a sweet and adorable picture book that explores the reasons and different ways children sometimes hide. The story is told with an endearing simplicity.

The illustrations are beautifully toned and they work well with the text to provide an extra layer of fun as children try to spot the little girl hiding. That being said, my youngest wasn't a huge fan of the character art, but did not specify why.

The story is written in short script that makes it easier for younger readers to read themselves.
