Deep in the forest, early in the morning, the animals slowly wake—except the panda, who is sleeping in. The monkey stretches, the red ant hides, the black bear yawns, and the gazelle smiles. But where is the okapi? Can you find it?

Over 50 animals—including the okapi—hide on the pages of this beautiful board book. The gorgeous forest scenes take readers from morning to night, from high in the trees to deep underground. Deep in the Forest is as much a visual treat as it is an introduction to exotic animals.

This book is extraordinary! We stepped into a jungle and we saw into the trees, we looked over a river, and peeked under the ground. The pictures and colors are so beautiful that we just sat and admired the pages before reading it. Each page was packed with animals to discover and we got a glimpse in the animal's day-to-day happenings. The prompts for searching animals on each page only cover a few of the animals hidden. We loved searching for all the different jungle animals and we were surprised by the flap on each page that hid even more animals.

This book is a great companion book to read with your children and also a great independent discovery book for young readers and adventurers. It is a large, and durable, board book which makes it suitable for younger children. Animal lovers and little explorers will love this book!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
