This in­no­va­tive flip‐for­mat pic­ture book is a se­quel to Smile Cry, which was a Chil­dren’s Book Coun­cil of Aus­tralia No­table Book in 2017 and win­ner of the pres­ti­gious SCBWI Crys­tal Kite Award (Aus­tralia and New Zealand re­gion). In See Hear, Piglet, Bunny and Cat re­turn in a charm­ing, whim­si­cal sen­sory ad­ven­ture that en­cour­ages kids to ex­plore the mul­ti­tude of ways they can en­gage with the world around them, par­tic­u­larly via the senses of sight and sound. From watch­ing ‘squig­gly rain’ on a win­dow to point­ing out ‘heav­enly horses’ in the clouds, from hear­ing ‘buzzing blos­soms’ as bees col­lect pollen and nec­tar to ‘hot pan siz­zles’ as a favourite meal is pre­pared, See Hear in­vites us to open our eyes and ears to the ev­ery­day magic that sur­rounds us. Younger kids will re­spond to the soft whim­si­cal il­lus­tra­tions, while older read­ers will en­joy the ono­matopoeic word­play. Per­fect for ages 3 and up­wards, this is a book that will cap­ti­vate chil­dren and par­ents alike.
