The story is about a girl called Heidi who is extremely skilled at Hide & Seek. She plays it all the time with her friends and she always wins which makes her feel great. It never occurs to her that her friends might want to do something else.
On Heidi’s birthday she has a party at her house and they all play her favourite game. However she hides so well that they don’t find her until the very end of the party, which means she has missed out on all the balloons and ice cream with her friends. They all had fun together whilst she was on her own.
Heidi realises that something needs to change so the next time her friends suggest a game she listens to what they would like to do, and soon discovers that they each have their own hidden talents.
This is a beautifully illustrated book and Ivy loves trying to spot Heidi on the pages where she has hidden herself away.
From a parent’s point of view, I love the message which the story promotes. It’s great to be good at something but it’s even better to try something new, especially with your friends. You will learn so much more about the people around you when you truly listen to what they have to say and open yourself up to new experiences.
