“Tal is hiding. Who knows where Tal is? Maybe he slipped into a pocket? Or jumped into the toy basket?”
Tal and his father play Hide and Seek. Tal hides and his father tries to find him. When the book ends the game has only just begun. Now the parents and toddlers who read the story together can play the game, hide, seek, and reverse roles.

So much is happening in this simple, fun game: We enjoy ourselves and are curious – where’s Daddy? What do we do now? – We learn to seek out and find solutions for new situations, discover that a person or item exist even when we do not see them, and, by solving the puzzle, are filled with a sense of accomplishment and joy – Daddy has not vanished! We found him!
