This wordless picture book is a lot of fun and challenges children to identify which animal is "missing." Try naming the animals and their colours on the first pages (with the white background) before moving on to guessing which animals you can't see on the following pages. Note: The chameleon is extra fun!

Clever wordless book that make the animals disappear by changing the background color of the page. A good book for one-on-one reading and observation with younger kiddos.

I thought this would be great for story time, but it turned out to not work so well since the animals did not look enough like themselves. The book would work better for one-on-one sharing.
