Con mis amigos los animales

This beloved title from the Look What I See, Where Can I Be? series is now bilingual, in English and Spanish! 



A charming baby dozes during each of her family’s outings. Awakened by the sounds and smells of the places where different animals reside, she opens her eyes and sees a lively detail—an eye, an ear, a hoof, a head.


Help Baby solve the mysteries of this guessing-game book. Where would she see a dolphin’s face? Where would she see the furry ears of a German shepherd pup? Turn the page, and colorful photographs reveal the entire scene.


Celebrate the fun of exploring new places, the excitement of seeing real animals, and the joy of bringing home a new pet.
