Look What I See! Where Can I Be? 

In the Neighborhood 

¡Mira lo que veo!

¿Dónde crees que estoy?

En el barrio

This revamped classic is now bilingual, in English and Spanish!


In this inaugural title in the Look What I See! Where Can I Be? series, Baby is on the go in the neighborhood, accompanied by her loving family.


She finds herself waking up in seven different situations, and, at first, she focuses on a single detail. Then, turning the page, the entire scene is revealed in vibrant, immersive photographs.


Older kids will love the guessing game aspect of the book, while young children will be content to “read” the pictures of the adventures of a very little person just like themselves. Through charming photographs and simple words, children learn how to be aware of the world around them.

“The perfect vehicle for the younger child to explore what is in the world, and to establish the concept that there are interesting things wherever they are.”

—Waduda Henderson, Montessori Directress

“These beautiful, gentle picture books encourage small children to be aware of the world around them. They depict family members together, caring for each other. A pleasure to look at, again and again.”

—Eileen Hanning, Educational Specialist for The Reading Connection



“Rich visual appeal and repetitive dialogue entertain infants. Some cleverly hidden objects, picture associations, and verbal participation in Baby's dialogue with the reader intrigue and challenge toddlers, too.”

—Michal Callaghan, University of Virginia Center for Children's Books
