PEEK-A-BOO! by Jan Ormerod
CHILDREN'S
Released: March 1, 1998

"The uncluttered illustrations show the babies against plain pastel backgrounds, making this simple, happy fare for the very youngestwhat a good idea to build a book around this universal infant game. (Board book. 0-3)"

A fold-down flap (located in the same spot on every spread, supplying the predictability needed by this age group) discloses the baby's face and the various rhyming answers. Read full book review >
