Cute and fun, but there are cuter versions out there.

Summary:

Partially-revealed images are paired with a question about what might be “peeking” on the next page. There are 5 questions, and the last is a mirror with “you.”


Parent Perspective:
A fun twist on Peek-a-boo that toddlers are sure to love. The first question is set up by the title of the book which “models” what happens for the next four scenes. Sturdy, thick pages are perfect for little hands that want to play with the book on their own.

Keep this in mind as new-baby or toddler birthday gift. Parents will bore of it quickly, but infants and toddlers will love engaging with the book. Having it around for them to "read" on their own is great, too, as handling the book helps build motor skills and help them learn how books work.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Toddlers, in particular, will love playing with this book! Once they know the "answers" they will delight in being able to predict what's next! The mirror in the back is an added bonus!!

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Type of Book:
This is an interactive board book built around the idea of the peek-a-boo game for infants.
Educational Themes:

This is a "guessing game" book. Once you're readers know what is on the next page, they will delight in reading it again and being so smart about knowing what's there. It may bore you, but it is really good for them!

Leave this one lying around for kids to pick up. Great practice for building motor skills as they learn to turn the page.
