‘What’s hidden in the Woods‘ is an imaginatively clever way to engage younger and emerging readers.
With the use of three magic magnifying glasses and simple clues, it helps you unearth the hidden animals and objects within.
From initial glances, it appears that Aina Bestard has created a calm, quiet wood, but as you take a closer look, the wood is miraculously brought to life by the coloured glasses.
The unassuming three-colour wood, suddenly transforms into a bustling, hive of activity behind each coloured magnifying glass.
From deer and foxes to bees and wasps, there are lots of tiny details to capture behind each glass.
The bee hive hanging from the tree looks like any other bee hive hanging from a tree, until that is, you place the blue glass over the image and then the intricacies of the hive and its inhabitants are brought to life.
PS Keep an eye out for the baby bear
