Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Perhaps the most ancient and universal of children's games, peekaboo is played almost instinctively. In Anno's book for very young children, die-cut hands block a face; flip the hands to reveal a rabbit, cat, tiger, man, woman or a baby. A pair of hands swing back and forth between the pictures on each spread. This is a fun book that will elicit responses from the very young child, with plenty of room for guessing and participation. Ages 2-5. (April)
School Library Journal
PreS A book for the youngest library patrons, this is a book version of the appearing and disappearing game with bold, clear pictures of people and animals. Large heads, one to a page, are stylistically drawn in pastel watercolors or colored pencil on a white background. Between these pages are shorter die-cut pages in the shape of a pair of pink hands, situated so that they cover all but the top of the head. This is enough of a clue for youngsters to anticipate joyfully the hidden person or animal with the automatic response, ``Peekaboo!'' Of the 13 heads, 5 are pink-skinned people, the rest are familiar animals. Wherever very young patrons are served, this simple book will be popular. Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
