Awesome Children's Book! Dec 19, 2007
I ordered 5 of these books for my friends with children and they ALL loved it! Me included. The author was very creative in her words and also having the children think and look for the elusive moose on each page! This is a must buy!
Find That Moose! Mar 20, 2007
I have an 18 month old. As long as you keep reminding her that YOU are the one who is turning the pages, they are safe for the toddler set. She LOVES to point at the animals. All birds make a "quack quack" sound in her world. She will look at the pages for a long time and they really hold her attention. Sometimes we have to help her find that moose, but she's found him on her own as well and then she claps. The book will grow with her, too. It's definitely good for all early ages.
The story is poetic, but not sing-song and childish, it's refreshing to read aloud! The book itself is full of information and each page is a wonderful panorama of interesting things to look at. If you are unfamiliar with this artist, she illustrates in needlework. It's beautiful! It goes so well with the style of the story. This book is a natural, family-oriented classic keeper-for-the-higher shelf for sure.
A Wonderful Hide-And-Seek Book! Mar 10, 2007
Elusive Moose, by Joan Gannij, is wonderful! My toddler delights in finding the hidden moose on each page and after the hundredth reading is now interested in pointing out the other animals in the verse. My pre-schooler also enjoys Elusive Moose particularly the information on the northern animals named in the book (located at the back). I can already imagine her sounding out the words and reading them to me one day. As a non-sewing adult I also marvel at Clare Beaton's illustrations. We never tire of reading and rereading this book! The pages of our Elusive Moose are bent and worn which I see as the signs of a well-loved book.
Awesome educational book for kids Oct 12, 2006
Since our hero, Sterve Irwin(the crocodile hunter), isn't with us anymore, it is all of our duties to spread the word and educate others about animals. Elusive Moose is a great book to teach the young ones about some animals that they aren't familiar with.
Majestic Moose Oct 4, 2006
My nieces and nephews loved this book! It is a search for a moose, among all the other animals, with a moose hiding on every page. Kids love the rhymes and the great illustrations. On top of that, the book is educational with information at the back about all the animals mentioned, from the moose itself to arctic foxes, badgers, caribou, and flying squirrels. Do yourself a favor and put this on your Christmas list for the picture book lovers (and animal lovers) in your family. They'll love playing hide and seek with this moose.
