This is an entertaining counting book that teaches children the power of play through the interaction of two unexpected friends, the ostrich and the lion. Barbieri McGrath’s Five Hiding Ostriches effortlessly weaves numbers, storytelling, dialogue, and rhyming action words in sharing this story. The classic children’s game of hide-and-seek takes center stage and teaches children how animals in the wild are creative when hiding from danger. The illustrations, with natural earthy colors, are a beautiful display of the savannah and the animals in their natural surroundings.

A joyful book to be used indoors or outdoors, it will inspire young readers to get moving, to be mindfully active, engaged and creative. It encourages a healthy way to instill social skills, friendships and teamwork through the power of play.
