Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The subtitle "A Farmyard Peekaboo Book" lets readers know what to expect, as does the text on the cover which tells us that there are flaps and textures to touch and feel. The cover features a pig and kids cannot touch the soft ear and feel its leathery hoof. Each spread contains a three quarter page flap to open in response to the question "I went...and what did I see?" The illustration shows what was seen and thus the answer. For example, "I tiptoed into the meadow, and what did I see?" "Baa-aboo!" "A sleepy sheep looking at me!" The sheep has a fuzzy spot to touch. The text is supposed to be soothing and help little ones settled down for the night. It closes with a look in the barn where the animals are all asleep. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
As long as eyes come as standard equipment on infants, the peek-a-boo game will be a sure baby-pleaser. Riding the tide is this mild barnyard charmer that combines both the perennial appeal of peek-a-boo with touch-and-feel elements. "I went to the farm, / and what did I see?" asks the text as a chubby pink pig sprawls, trotters over its eyes, on its back in the mud. Lift the flap and the pig throws its front feet over its head in exuberance, revealing a felty pink patch to feel as the text answers, "Oink-a-boo! / A big chubby pig looking at me." To this Bill Martin Jr. pattern, the usual barnyard suspects reveal themselves to readers, each with its own tactile treat. Bright and cheery, this has all the ingredients for an over-and-over laptime read. (Ages 1-3)
