Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Collins
Sure to be a hit with very small children, this book contains large brightly colored barnyard animals who play peek-a-boo with the reader. Each animal's face is covered by its hooves, paws, wings, etc. until the legs or wings are unfolded to reveal who the animal is and what it has to say. The name of the cow, the pig, the mouse, etc. is given as it says moo, oink, squeak, etc. The last game is played by "you," the baby foldout, who says "Peek-a-boo!" Tiny ones will, or course, want to play with the book by pulling down the foldouts, an action that should reinforce the learning of the names and the sounds of these barnyard animals as well as associate fun with reading. The pages and pullouts are sturdily constructed so that they should be durable enough for numerous readings.
School Library Journal
PreS-This lift-the-flap book features seven familiar barnyard animals covering their faces with two of their appendages (hoofs, wings, etc.). The text on each page is identical, "Guess who? Peek-a-...." Turning down the flaps reveals the face of the animal and the sound it makes. The final spread features a baby. Children will most likely identify all of the animals even before lowering the flaps. This aside, they'll love making the sounds that the book is bound to induce. The creatures are presented in large scale and in vibrant colors set against a single color background. A boon for infant and toddler programs.-Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library, WI
