This book starts out as a simple animal seek-and-find picture book. It quickly becomes a story about how humans are taking over land used as homes by the animals leaving them no place to live. Since this is a kid's book, there's a happy ending. The animals take the last tree available to them and move to another lush, tropical paradise. There are no words in the book and this would be a good one to discuss the impact humans have on animals and land use with all ages.

Readers are invited to find elephant, parrot, and snake in each of the double-page spreads.

Not only is this a great seek-and-find book for preschool and first grade audiences, the illustrations invite discussions about environmental change for all ages.
