Parents Need to Know

QUALITY

From a chaotic vet's waiting room to a science fair where a rat has escaped its cardboard maze and is scurrying along the floor, the colorful cartoon scenes in HIGHLIGHTS MY FIRST HIDDEN PICTURES are great fun. Younger kids will enjoy seeing all there is to see in a scene in addition to hunting for the hidden objects themselves, but older kids will likely tire of the fact that it's always the same list of items to find and they're always in the same places.
