Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
2006 Scholastic Parent & Child Best Book of the Year
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Flaps that are almost the size of the page are lifted to answer the question "Peek-A-Boo Who? The answer is a full page picture of the animal plus its name. Sharp-eyed kids will notice that the cut out on the flap is a clue to what lies underneath. The animals include a pig, cat, rabbit, elephant, fish, duck, turtle, and cow. The animals are all reprised in black silhouettes on the front and back inside covers. The colored pages also offer an opportunity to learn colors. The pages of this board book have foam inserts, which makes the book lightweight but still quite sturdy. While the text is quite repetitious, young kids probably will not mind, though the reader might go a little crazy after a few passes. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
