Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Toddlers will enjoy outwitting Harry by quickly finding him in the bright, cheerful illustrations, and they will appreciate the culminating expression of friendship and affection.

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Since Peek-a-Boo is one of the first games young children learn, they will quickly immerse themselves in this game of hide and seek where a little girl and a little boy search across the beach for Harry, a hippo. It is easy to see parts of this large hippo in each of his hiding places, making this a good choice for an interactive reading with babies and toddlers. The simple, rhyming text, with terms such as “sand dunes,” and “castle,” extends the child’s vocabulary A red crab is seen throughout the book and provides a second creature for which to search, thus requiring a closer look at each page. Various body parts, such as Harry’s face or tail, can be seen while he is hiding—again, offering an opportunity for parent and child to interact and build the child’s vocabulary. The illustrations are inviting, colorful, and have an appropriate simplicity for young children. Whether you are a beach goer or not, Harry will provide tons of fun. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo; Ages 1 to 3.
