Synopsis

Where's the Bear? A Look and Find Book by Jan Brueghel, Jan Bruegel, J Getty, J Paul Getty Museum

Jan Brueghel's elaborate 1613 painting entitled The Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark is cleverly transformed into this look-and-find book for children. Twenty-five detailed illustrations prompt children to identify different kinds of animals while accompanying text shows the word for each animal in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese. Each word is spelled phonetically, so parents can help children learn how to pronounce the foreign names correctly. A color foldout of the painting in its entirety makes it fun for young readers to locate each animal from Noah's Ark.
