Friday Book Review: What's Hiding in There?

"What's Hiding in There?" by the very talented Daniela Drescher is a wonderful book for preschool on up. It's only 7 double spread pages of lift-the flaps, but the art work is absolutely stunning and the wonder the kids have at lifting the flaps to reveal the surprise is so precious!

The book is a series of vignettes centered around nature, wildlife, and "wee folk" (fairies, elves, etc). It is written with a series of questions which encourage children to lift the flaps to find the hidden object.

Here are a couple of the 2 page spreads...

This book is put out by Floris Books and just about anything Floris puts out is fantastic. Ms. Drescher has numerous books available, many of which can be seen at waldorf book stores.

If you have a younger child full of wonder, I bet they would love this book! I have seen some of her postcards at the Waldorf Toys online shop, but know shipping is outrageous to the States. Has anyone seen them locally or within the US/Canada, by chance?


  1. Oh it is beautiful, lovely art work. cheers Marie
