Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The paper-over-board Peek-a-Boo Christmas by Marie Torres Cimarusti, illus. by Stephanie Peterson, combines lots of amusement, with flaps, funny words and a memory game at the end. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
Clearly for toddlers, this book will provide for them consistent rhythms—the end-line rhyming words are simply and easy to follow—and the opportunity to pull open and down a variety of flaps—the hands/hooves of a variety of characters, the doors of a number of homes. Action verbs support the story throughout; for example, when the narrator offers the "Guess who? Peek-a-," the response when pulling down the snowman's mittens is "BRRRRR-RRRRRRR! Shivers the snowman." Besides the snowman, readers will hear from a reindeer, a nutcracker, a gingerbread girl, Santa Claus, a toy train, and an elf. A final page allows teachers/parents to work on matching activities between "what" the snowman or gingerbread or nutcracker said and the picture of that entity. The illustrations, like the text, are very small and child-friendly with easily recognizable features and bright primary colors. Blurred edges again help to create the warm, friendly feeling of the text. This is a good, basic text for little people.
