About the Book

In this easy-to-read picture book, Ted Lewin invites readers to explore animal camouflage in the rain forest with a seek-and-find game.

"I am a bird. Can you see me?" asks a toucan hidden amongst the trees. "I am a snake. Can you see me?" challenges a vine snake disguised by its surroundings.

Lush watercolor illustrations inspired by Lewin's trips to Costa Rica show how different animals blend into their habitats. The simple text encourages young readers to use their sharp eyes as they try to spot each creature.
