Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The paper-over-board Peek-a-Book: A Lift-the-Flap Bedtime Rhyme by Lee Wardlaw, illus. by Melissa Sweet, presents a toddler's evening activities, from supper to bath to bedtime story, in a rhyming text and small lift-the-flaps. In the end it's bedtime-"Cozy warm/ In blankets deep./ Peek-a-moon,/ Peek-a-sleep"-with two superimposed time-lapse flaps revealing a moon who nods off, too. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Certain times of the day have their various routines associated with them. For parents, their child's bedtime is probably one that they also look forward to. In this lift the flap book, a young boy is playing on the couch with mom. It is their favorite game—peek-a-boo. That is the prelude to dinnertime, which is followed by a big bubble bath. It is nice to see that Dad had joined in the care giving at this point. There are two flaps to lift on this page that reveal the rubber duck and sailboat that are also in the bathtub. On with the pajamas and a hug from Mom followed by a story with Dad before this little toddler heads off to sweet dreams. An easy choice for parents who need books to help kids learn how to wind down the day. 2003, Dial/Penguin Putnam, Ages 6 mo. to 3.
