Fabulous lift-the-flaps hide parts of the body in this vibrant, surprising board book from the author and illustrator of Where Is Baby's Belly Button?
Rosy-cheeked children and patterns galore fill Marion Dane Bauer and Karen Katz's book, testing toddlers' knowledge by hiding hands, ears, belly buttons, and more beneath large flaps. Pages ask readers to guess what's inside a girl's mittens, for example, revealing her hands underneath when the flap is lifted. Other hidden parts include ears under a multicolored hat, an elbow hidden inside a flowery shirtsleeve, and a back that's protected by a long coat, but of course "the very best secret of all" is "Me!" beneath a purple blanet at the end.
Bauer and Katz have created a busy and bright learning lift-the-flap that's truly special. Unlike other books, this treat covers more than just the obvious body parts, using Katz's welcoming, eye-candy illustrations to draw readers in. A cheery board book that'll keep them smiling and guessing. Matt Warner
