This little book is so cute and fun. My 9 month old never tires of it. The peek through windows help kids identify objects with just a peek. The play on "peek-a-boo" is fun and will inspire you to do the same without the book. This book is a great size for the car or diaper bag and is quick entertainment when dealing with a bored baby.

This is one of our granddaughter's favorites....not only is it bright and colorful, but she's able to turn pages easily due to the cutout center. And of course, the mirror at the end is her favorite page! This book gets read often each day.

My sons love this little book (including the surprise at the end). Adorable illustrations highlight this classic peek-a-boo spinoff.

A good way to get my 1 year old interested in books. Peek-a YOU!

This is a great book for infants. My daughter loves turning the pages and especially loves seeing herself in the mirror at the end.

Based on the good reviews, I purchased this book online for my niece's 1st b-day & was not disappointed. This is a sturdy little board book that will entertain infants, toddlers & adults, too! It's also very short, a bonus if you're asked to read it over & over & over again (& you will!) Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend to a friend. This book makes a wonderful gift & is simply a delight to read with any Peek-A-Boo fan.

This guessing game book will keep the attention of any child. The cut-outs, questions, and illustrations are fun and enchanting for children. The colors are vibrant, and the visuals are charming.

Colorful pictures and simple rhyming texts would help children guess what's peeking through the die-cut windows in the board book.

A peek-a-boo game in a book, but very clever. The book has five sets of corresponding page spreads (six, counting the cover and title page) that follow a simple format. The first spread has a page with the words "Peek-a" and a companion page with a hole cut out of it, giving the reader a peek of the coming illustration. The second spread has a page with the word for that peek (for instance, moo, boo, or zoo) and the companion page reveals the hidden illustration (for instance, a cow, a ghost, or a zoo). Super cute. I love the fact that "peek-a-boo!" refers to a ghost, and that the last page is a mirror, for "peek-a-you!" I bought this book for my baby girl, who loves it, but my toddler also loves it and is always stealing it away! A home run in the fun book department.

In this board book the classic peek-a-boo becomes a fun rhyming game. One page says 'peek-a' and the facing page has a window hinting at the sound to come. For example, one page is covered in black and white spots, the page is turned to reveal a cow and ¿Moo!¿. The illustrations are simple and colorful, and the words are bright and stand out against backgrounds of mostly solid color with some textured shapes. The book features things kids love, and love to make sounds of: animals, zoos, trains and, of course, their own reflection. This book encourages a fun way to interact with toddlers.

Both of my children have LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. It was my now almost 8 yr old daughter's favorite when she was a tot, and now my toddler son's favorite. Both learned to say the words/sounds pretty quickly and loved turning the page quickly to get to the "Who!" or "Boo!" etc. This one gets multiple readings in one sitting for sure.

This is a wonderful board book for children about 6 months to 24 months old. It has very colorful pictures that the children love and a simple pattern to the book that eventually the children can start to get on their own. It has a mirror in the back that the children really love. I work with toddlers and we have already gone through a few copies because they love it so much.

My 7 month old grandson likes this little book. It has holes in the pages (for peek a boo). I recommend it.

This board book cleverly plays peek-a-boo with cutouts showing part of the picture on the next page, the picture always rhyming with the boo of "peek-a-boo" game. Most of the pictures make a noise that is the rhyme (who, moo, boo, choo-choo) the last two don't (zoo, you). My 18mo son really likes the "choo-choo" part. The reason that I only gave this 2 stars: - I really like the owl in the leaves on the cover, but I'm less keen on most of the other drawings. I really don't like the green ghost. - The words are really limited to "Peek-a-" and then the answer. That's it. I would have liked something on the line of "Peek-a-Who! The owl says Who-Who. Owls are birds that are awake at night." or something. I would have liked at least 2-3 sentences (including Peek-a..." per picture. - So, it's okay, but I was really excited about the concept and disappointed with the execution.

I'm reading this to my 10 month old at night. I won't lie and tell you that my child is fascinated by books at this age....he usually glances at pages when i read aloud and then proceeds to play with the zipper on his sleep sack. However, this book is short and engaging, and he always looks at the last page! I like the rhyme and repetition, but I would say this is for younger children for sure because there isn't a plot...just great rhymes!

Both of my children (now 4 and 1) have LOVED this book.  It is the one that they requested over and over again.  The corners are worn and the book is well loved.

The book is wonderful; both my sons 3 and 6 loved it as little ones. However, when I decided to send it to my neice for her first christmas the results were disasterous. Needless to say, after five phone calls to customer service the book that was guaranteed to be delivered by the holidays arrived by the END OF JANUARY. B&N response? A $10 gift card. Not good enough. Despite being a frequent shopper at the stores, I will NEVER order from this site again!!
