Children will relate to the vividly illustrated and simple story.

Let’s Hide From Mom is the fun sequel to author Parimalasri Docktor’s children’s book Tortoise Goes to the Vet. It features Radha, an Indian Star Tortoise who, like many young children, doesn’t want to go to bed at her established time. Along with her tortoise companion, Krishna, she scrambles to hide from Mom when she comes to put them to bed.

Radha is a precocious little tortoise who knows all the best hiding places. She also tries to coach Krishna in finding the perfect spot. Small children will love hearing about how they escape detection, maybe seeing themselves in Radha’s desire to stay up past bedtime.

The author also illustrates the story and uses bright colors in her often intricately detailed scenes. Her style gives readers plenty to look at and discover on each page. At the end of the book, there is an entertaining section devoted to finding specific items hidden in plain sight, such as birds, butterflies, and insects. That bumblebee is a tricky one!

I recommend LET’S HIDE FROM MOM to young readers and adults for reading aloud.

I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving an Advanced Review Copy from the author through Goddess Fish Promotions Book Tours.

An adorable story about a turtle who doesn't want to go to bed yet. The story is cute, and goes through various places Radha and Krishna try to hide. The illustrations are nice, and go along well with the story. You get to explore their home as they try to hide in different places. Eventually, it's time for lights out and bedtime. At the end of the book there's two "I spy" style games, where you find a certain number of each object in the two different pictures. Kids are sure to enjoy both the story and game at the end. Definitely recommend for anyone with small kids, especially ones who have problems with sleep!… (mais)

This was a wonderful picture book. I LOVED the illustrations, they were beautifully done, and remind me of some of the books when I was a kid. The story itself address what happens to pets after the death of an owner, but isn't super sad overall. There's plenty of easy-to-digest information on tortoises' habitats and diets. A great book for kids that can be informational and fun to read.
