MILO IS MISSING SOMETHING is a cute picture book about exploration and family. After Milo hatches, he is excited to explore the intriguing world around him. He plays with other sea animals and checks out new things, but he feels like something is missing. He searches all over, but he can't seem to find it. When he settles down to sleep and dreams, he wakes to find that thing that has been missing - his family!

What I loved: The pictures here are really adorable, and I love the use of color and motion that make Milo and his exploration come to life. The book shows a range of sea creatures, though they are not all named. The story is relatively simple with a happy ending, and the writing to picture ratio is relatively low, making the pages turn as quickly as young readers would like. It would work well for toddlers and preschoolers who will appreciate the simplicity of the story, the sudden resolution, and the brevity of the text along with the colorful and cute images throughout.

Final verdict: MILO IS MISSING SOMETHING is a sweet picture book read about exploring and family with really delightful and adorable illustrations. Recommend for toddlers and preschoolers.
