I love Steve Light's picture books and board books and have reviewed eight of them already! With Have You Seen My Lunchbox? he matches his detailed style of black and white illustration with something all little kids love to do when being read a book - find things "hidden" in the pictures.
The premise (and pattern) are simple and fun. On every page, a little boy is looking for something amid the low-grade chaos of home life with little kids. On the verso is the text telling readers what the boy is looking for. The color on the text page also matches the color of the item the boy is seeking. Light adds one color to the illustration so that the look-and-find game is just a little bit challenging.
Don't miss these other magnificent books
by Steve Light!
