Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS- The adorable tot from Isadora's Peekaboo Morning (Putnam, 2002) is back in this getting-ready-for-bed story. As in the previous book, the child exclaims in big, bold letters, "Peekaboo! I see...," leading readers to turn the page to find the person or object of the game. Bright pictures, done with pastels, add to the fun as the child spies grandparents, parents, pets, a rubber duck, "my blankie," and finally, from atop the bed, "you!" Youngsters will enjoy searching for visual clues as they play along with the familiar toddler activity.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

Kirkus Reviews
Where Peekaboo Morning (2002) began the day, Isadora's latest features the delightful brown-skinned, tousle-haired toddler wrapping up his/her day with the same people and objects with which it started. "Peekaboo! I see . . ." begin the right-hand pages, which also sometimes give visual clues as to what may be found when the page is turned. The moon, family members and pets, slippers, rubber duck and blankie are among the surprises he/she finds along the way, while the final page provides readers with a surprise of their own. The pastel illustrations are a delight, a visual celebration of family. The joy and love on the child's face show readers that the bedtime routine is a special time and that the people and objects "found" by the child are beloved favorites. Fans of Isadora's toddler will not want to miss Uh-oh! (2008), also due out this month. Perfect for laptime sharing or calm story hours. (Picture book. 2-5)
