“SIX : It might be okay / to hide under the sink / with a bathtub pail / and a boat / and a whale / as long as you hide / that curly dog tail.” While the cookies are baking, a small boy plays hide-and-seek with father. But it’s hard to decide on the perfect hiding place! As the counting ascends from one to ten, the child and his dog change their minds again and again. Behind a tree? Under the desk? Inside a box? Janet Wong’s breezy story features bright, bold illustrations by Margaret Chodos-Irvine. (Ages 2–4)
