Here’s what Jan had to say about her book:
“Hide & Go Seek With Lion is a board-book with interactive lift-flaps to help gain and maintain your child’s attention. This book is great for developmental ages birth-3 years old. The bright, simple pictures with repetitive phrases helps facilitate early developmental milestones. Your child will love helping Lion find all of his friends!”

A childhood beyond what you’ve imagined.
Window of Opportunity for Young Children and Families:
When you think of your child and how he or she is growing, you notice things like how soon he or she smiles, rolls over, sits up, walks, talks, and feeds himself/herself.
The five primary developmental areas are:
- Language Development – how a child understands language and speaks to express thoughs, ideas and needs.
- Motor Development – how a child uses large and small muscles.
- Self-Help Skills – how a child eats, dresses and cares for oneself.
- Social & Emotional Development – how a child relates to other children and adults.
- Cognitive Development – how a child thinks and learns.
While children grow and change at their own rate, some children can experience delays in development. Sometimes this can be cause for concern.
