Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
“It’s teatime for Bunny, but where can she be?” asks the narrator in this addition to the Go, Baby! line. As children make their way through a forest, they can lift flaps in hopes of finding the rabbit; a cluster of pink flowers reveals Lamb, who has a bit of fluffy wool, while a rock disguises someone else (“Is she busy digging a home? No, it’s Badger!”). The urging prose, tactile elements, and crisp graphics create a fun hide-and-seek diversion. Simultaneously available: Have You Seen Kitty?, Have You Seen Duck?, Have You Seen Puppy? Up to age 3. (June)
From the Publisher
Berg's clear, stylized cartoons in rich colors are both simple and detailed, making them easy for little ones who are learning to name their world.—Kirkus
Kirkus Reviews
A lift-the-flap and touch-and-feel peekaboo experience for little ones. On the left side of each spread, the text poses a variety of questions about Bunny's whereabouts. One image (a bird, a mushroom, or a dragonfly) from the much busier right-hand side appears front and center. On the right, readers are encouraged to lift a relatively sturdy, shaped flap embedded in the landscape to see if Bunny is hiding underneath. Behind the first four flaps, youngsters encounter a lamb, a hedgehog, a deer and a badger in their habitats, and each creature features a small textural element. On the last page and below the final flap, Bunny nibbles on cabbages behind a garden gate. Berg's clear, stylized cartoons in rich colors are both simple and detailed, making them easy for little ones who are learning to name their world. Unfortunately, the tactile components are really too small to be satisfying, and the textures do not always connect with their host (a smooth hedgehog and a ribbed carrot?). The sister title, Have You Seen Duck?, follows the same text and layout patterns, but this time, it's Duck who's on the loose. The textural elements here are better matched, but they still run on the small side. In both titles, the black text against a dark blue background on a couple pages is difficult to read. A fine choice for lift-the-flap fans, but touch-and-feel enthusiasts should try other offerings. (Board book. 1-3)
