Recommends it for: parents of active toddlers
I would never have picked this book out for my daughter. Thankfully, my amazing sister-in-law sent it to us as a present. While the adult appeal may be small (until you witness a small child reading it), it is a really wonderful and amazingly interactive book for toddlers. The concept is simple - a peekaboo book with flaps hiding animals. When you open the flaps, you can see different animals with soft (or, in the case of the mouse) squeaky bellies, and the last peekaboo page is a mirror. I espe ...more

Super simple, but utterly adorable for the little ones. If I can ever find a simple enough peek-a-boo craft, I am totally using this in storytime! As it is, though, I have to stick with reading it to a child snuggled in my lap. And that's okay, too.

Simple, kissable fun. My 8m/o still loves this book. He tips over his toy chest to dig it out, and loves kissing the animals fuzzies as they appear. If that doesn't warrant five stars, I don't know what does.

Summary: This book plays peek-a-boo with the child. Each page is a folded page. When you first look at the page, it is an animal hiding behind its hands or legs or something. Then you fold open the page and the animal pop out, and have a texture for the child to feel. Then the last page has a mirror for the children to play peek-a-boo with themselves or to see themselves in a mirror.
Personal Reaction: I think this is a good book for the child to work on turning pages, and opening the pages. It i

This has been a great kids beginner book. It has furry animals to touch and give kisses to and at the end there is a mirror that both of my kids have smothered in kisses to kiss themselves.

This is a wonderful sensory book that I have used with young children that are not able to move around or that are wheelchair bound. This book has flaps to lift and textures to touch.

My babies LOVE this book! They learned right after one read that the mouse squeaks, and they get so excited to poke his little belly. This is their go-to book - they just love it!

This is a great book for an infant. There were many aspects of the book to touch and feel. Saying "peekaboo" is always fun with an infant.

Made for small children to read along and touch the pages with different animals. Very easy for children to read and follow along.

This book is more for little children. It helps them learn different animals and to see how each animal feels.

I really enjoy flipping through each page and saying peekaboo to each animal and then giving them a kiss!
This is not something I would have chosen, but kido has returned to it over and over for several months.
