Overview

On every page, kids play peek-a-boo with a different animal found at the zoo, guessing what it is, then lifting the flap to find out. Each animal has a different sound that becomes part of the peek-a-boo game: Guess who? "Peek-a-roar!" says the lion. "Peek-a-ooo-ooo-ooo!" says the chimpanzee. The sweet, funny animals will keep kids laughing, while the large trim size and sturdy binding will ensure many hours of lift-the-flap fun!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The follow-up to the paper-over-board Peek-a-Moo!, Peek-a-Zoo! by Marie Torres Cimarusti, illus. by Stephanie Peterson, engages readers in a variation of the favorite childhood game with different animals hiding beneath flaps that resemble claws, paws, etc. ("Guess who? Peek-a-"). When readers turn down the flap, they uncover the animal's identity ("roar! Says the lion"). A human child appears as the grand finale.
Children's Literature
As a first book for an infant, this is an excellent selection. Based on what is probably the first game ever played with a child in arms, Peek-a-Zoo should be a familiar concept, even to the youngest child. The opening page suggests a game of peek-a-boo at the zoo and starts with, "Guess who? Peek-a-," and when a huge and sturdy one-third of-a-page-size flap picturing a lion with paws over his eyes is lifted away from the animal's face, "roar! says the lion." There are half a dozen more zoo animals hiding their eyes and one baby human at the end. Inside the back cover, all of the animals make a second appearance, this time under the flaps with their sounds on the outside. 2003, Dutton,
