Totally kissable and "fully interactive," Peekaboo Kisses has cuddly animal lovers lifting big flaps to see what kinds of smooches are in store for them! Five little creatures are hiding their eyes, but underneath, their touch-and-feel kisses are just right. "Fluffy kitten kisses" lets us feel the feline's soft tummy, "woolly sheep kisses" warms us with a white woolly belly, and "squeaky mouse kisses" gives off a fun squeaky sound when you press down on it. But who's that hiding behind all the animals on the last page? It's you! -- and readers can see their reflections in a hidden mirror. An adorable book from Barney Saltzberg -- author of Animal Kisses, a Child magazine Best Book of the Year for 2000 -- this touchable treat is sure to elicit giggles with its happy surprises.

I see.../ YOU!"). (Aug.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

I got this book for my 1 1/2 year old a year ago. It quickly became one of his favorite books. Now, my other son (who is 1) loves this book as well and picks it regularly for me to read to him at night. I now get this as a baby shower gift to go along with a blanket & pair of PJ's so other families can enjoy it at bedtime too. It is a simple book, but my children love the interaction and seeing themselves at the end.

This is a pretty decent book for a young baby. My 7 month old enjoys touching the fuzzy hair on each page, but I was a little disappointed that each page has the exact same 'fur' type but in different colors. What makes this book worthwhile is that each page flaps open to reveal who is Peek a Boo-ing, and one page has a mouse that you push and it makes a squeeky noise. Also the last page has a mirror so that is fun too.

Our two-year old adores this hardback interactive. The bright red cover captures his attention immediately, while the consistently colorful pages keep him in awe throughout. It is one of his favorites. From the well proportioned layout, to the softness of the hardcover, to the vividly colorful inside pages, and the creative interactivity, this touch and feel is a must have! Satisfaction is Guaranteed!

I love to give a basketful of books for baby shower gifts and this is one of the books that is always included. My granddaughter likes the characters and loves to be nuzzled and kissed after each page. Of course, she likes looking at herself in the mirror on the last page of the book. Now that she is two years old, I find her taking the book from the shelf and reading it to herself. This is a must have book for any toddler's library!

I thought this book was really cute from the first time I saw it, the faces on the animals are adorable. My 20-month old son agrees with me because it is one of his favorite bedtime books. There is a fluffy or fuzzy animal behind each page, and the mouse even squeaks! My child loves that. The last page has a mirror so that your little one can play peekaboo with him/herself!

A good cuddle up book

My daughter loves to lift the flap and play "peekaboo" with the characters underneath. She loves to poke the squeaky mouse, and drags this book all over the house to read. It has stood up well to toddler handling and is short enough to keep her attention.

This story was my daughter's favorite. She was read this story when she was born in 2002 and it grew with her. Now we have another baby (18months old) and it's her favorite. She can't get enough of it. She will literally cry until you read it to her again. The book has been so loved we need to purchase another!

Wonderful book highly recommend! Bright and bold colors for younger children who love the interaction of touching the animal's fur in the book. They love the suprise at the end seeing themselves. A must for the family library.

Our daughter loves this interactive book. She turns the pages, opens the flaps, pets the soft fur, and plays peek-a-boo with the animals. She loves the squeaky mouse. Love it!

Both of my daughters like this book. With the material it gives them something to touch and learn about how each animal has a different type of fur. This has helped my oldest to start to read to her sister. It is a very good book when it comes to starting to read because it is very easy to read.

This is a cute touch and feel book that engages your child to lift the flaps to see a fun colorful character underneath.

This simple book is fun and interesting for my one-year-old daughter! My only complaint is that I wish the pages were a little thicker so that they did not bend when she handles the book. Other than that, I would highly recommend this for even the youngest readers!
