Look Book by Tana Hoban

Take a good look at all of the photographs in this book. First, they're covered up with only a small circle showing, and then the page is turned to reveal the entire picture. Some of them are really tricky! Tana Hoban's excellent photographs are what make this book so fun to explore. It brought back memories of trying to figure out closeup shots of bigger things in the back of a science magazine I used to read when I was a kid. It's a great type of book to read with a kid who thinks reading is boring; looking at this book can seem more like playing a game.

Find it at IndieBound.

Just Look by Tana Hoban


  1. My kid has a book he "reads" in the bath by Tana Hoban called What Is It? It's too simple for him now, but when he was first learning to talk, it was so cute to see him realize a spoon was a spoon.

  2. Tana Hoban's books are amazing for babies and toddlers. When I'm talking about kids books at work, I'm always talking about hers.
