I thought this was really cute. It reminded me of when I would look for my grandmother when I was a child. It always seemed to go on forever. I'm giving this to my nephew because he's ALWAYS looking for Mommy - he's such a Momma's Boy. Haha

This little board book follows an unnamed baby as it searches for its mother. The child is fairly gender-ambiguous, allowing for small children to easily imagine themselves in the baby's role. The search involves opening a number of flaps that reveal text paired with new items and animals. The images strongly support the text, and the flap aspect makes it a good one both for read alouds and for young children to explore on their own.

My son wasn't particularly thrilled with the art, but it was of

I would probably only give this 4 stars, but my one-year-old son really loves this "lift-the-flap book"- mostly because of its interactive nature. I think what he loves most about books is turning the pages and so he loves that there is also a flap to "turn". The illustrations have a "collagey" feel and the text is simple and short enough for a young child to stay interested. I think it's cute that the main character collects the objects he finds in his wagon and brings it with him.

I really like her cute artwork, and I like her direct way of writing to little kids. It works very well for them.

I do want to say, though, that this book is not very strongly constructed, which seems a terrible error, given the age range! Keep it on a high shelf, definitely. It's a book to be read with supervision.

Like all of Karen Katz's books, this one's so cute. But why of the four in the family series (mommy/daddy/grandma/grandpa) is this the only one where the adult's not on the cover?

SPOILER LOL... And why is this the only one where mommy only appears at the very end? I feel like mommy's playing hiding & seek too long, lol. She should be in the whole book! & so did Gabriel. Ha ha.

Answers some tough questions that sometimes you're scared to ask. For example: Can any good come from peeking behind a shower curtain with a wry grin? (see book cover; answer on page 10) Is mommy in the closet?? (see page 2) Is someone hiding in mommy's bed??? (see page 12)

The perennial "Where is…" game can be played through this enjoyable lift-the flap book. My daughter loved this for a long time.

A lovely book where baby is looking for his mummy. Nat loves tyring to peek under the plant, for whatever reason, the plant attracts him a lot.

This book held B's attention at a time when few books could (when she was 2 months old). We still enjoy reading it.

Hide-and-seek is currently one of Mini-Me's favourite games, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised she loved this as much as she did, even though I thought it might have been too young for her.

Love lift the flap books! I'd have given it another star, but it isn't quite Spot.

A lift and flap book about a child playing hide and seek with their mother. It is cute.
Very cute. My little boy enjoyed it a lot. :) ... Until he decided that the plant was scary. I think he was having a bad day that day, though.

I was excited when I saw this one because we like the belly button book so much, but this wasn't as great. It didn't make it home with us.

My 11 month old loves lifting the flaps, and seems fascinated by this book, but I have to be careful because she is a little rough and will try to tear the flaps off if she could.

Bright and fun illustrations. I wish the flaps were a little more heavily reinforced to the book. I have had to tape all mine with clear duct tape.
