About Kirstan Graham

Kirstan was all about her traditional career until she looked into the most beautiful blue eyes she had ever seen. Since that amazing moment she has focused on wielding her ten-plus years of graphic design experience, a B.A. in Arts & Letters, and every other creative bone in her body to start her own freelance venture, allowing her to be lost in those eyes every single day.

A lifelong Portland native and greyhound enthusiast, she enjoys spending time in Stumptown with her husband, baby girl, two adorable whippets and their super fluffy kitty. When not behind her Mac working on the latest graphic design project on the desk, she can be found fusing glass, reading, catching a movie, or generally anywhere there is nature, art or dogs.

What a great idea for a children's book. I have pre-school grandchildren and they loved this book. They especially liked the different body parts of the animals popping and out. what a great way for the little ones to learn. I have my grandkids with me today and they giggled with delight when I read it to them.

Wonderful illustrations. I recommend this book for pre-school children and their parents and grandparents.

A very cute, entertaining book with simple phrasing & colourful illustrations. Perfect for pre-readers, for parents or grandparents reading to littlies and for early readers to read to younger siblings. My niece thought this was a wonderful way to teach her soft toys about African animals.

I thought the 3 clues prior to the reveal of the animal were terrific for heightening anticipation and a fun way to teach & engage children in further discussion. Combining I Spy, Hide & Seek type game play was a great strategy to captivate and maintain attention, and encourage participation.

In this technological age of e-readers, i-phones, netbooks & laptops this is a portable, fun & educational way to keep a young child entertained and definitely a lovely series to keep. Kirstan's next book in the series, I See ... Serengeti is now available.

E-books are a life saver when we are traveling and with a little girl who loves animals and books I knew this book would be a perfect hit with us.

It is compact and a perfect size to keep a 2-yr old (well-almost) occupied for 15 minutes. It is simple, small words and fills my toddler with wonder and joy.

It was me who was not really happy with the illustrations. I wish the lion looked more lion like, the zebra more zebra like and you get the drift right?Also the author highlights portions of the animal in attempts to identify it and it did not work - the reason for that is the illustrations. I wish the illustrations were tad better.

The concept of hide and seek which the book puts forth is a little too advanced for my little girl. She just flips past the initial pages and goes directly to the ones where the animals are exposed. It is definitely a book to grow with and I am glad I have it on my e-reader.

I was given a free copy of the book for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are mine and my little girl's.

This is a lovely little book, just the right sort of length for a little one, with sweet illustrations and a nice range of vocab. I particularly like the view of parts then revealing the whole animal.
