Peek-a-Moo! (Lift-the-Flap) by Marie Torres Cimarusti, illustrated by Stephanie Petersen is a classic lift the flap book focusing on farm related animals.

This book has repetition on every page, with the phrase, “guess who? Peek a ____.” Lifting the flap to find out, the reader discovers a phrase like "Peek-a-moo!" says the cow, or "Peek-a-quack!" says the duck. This book for emergent readers features a large font, good space between letters, few words on each page, repetitive phrases, and illus

Head this one at a library story time. It didn't seem like much to me, but L LOVED it. Each time the animal did it's thing "Peek-a-Moo!" "Peek-a-squeak!" "Peek-a-quack!" she had a big grin on her face and a shy little laugh (no loud laughs in public, she's shy). I'll have to try to remember to check this out for her at some point so she can enjoy it at home. Great choice for two-year-olds who enjoy peek-a-boo and animal sounds (so, all two-year-olds, just about).

1. Basically this is a younger children's book which seems like was made to help kids understand different animals and the noises that they make. It starts out asking what are the different animals in the barnyard. Then there in the question Guess who? and a picture of a animal with a flap covering its' eyes and face. Once you flip down the flap it says the typical noise that the animal makes and also what the animal is. This is then a continuing theme throughout the book.

I liked the big flaps that are easy for babies to manipulate. This is another one that I'd like to come back to when Gavin is older and working on animal sounds. He definitely liked this better than the other peek-a-boo book I read him last week. He was pretty into it but held back a little because he was by far the youngest kid in the storytime group and the older toddlers were more assertive about volunteering to open the flaps. And there's an owl, which for some reason I still can't figure ou ...more

I want to follow my friend, Becky's, example and share some of my favorite children's books. This is Sally's favorite book right now. It doesn't have a lot of words but the few it does have are absolutely hilarious to a child under two. It's super interactive with the lift the flaps, and prompts to "moo", or "quack", or make some other animal sound. And it's short enough to read a number of times without contributing too much to your insanity, but still feeding the repetition craving of your you ...more

Well, I'm not head-over-heels for the book. But the flap format will be great for the toddlers, especially with them guessing the animals and their sounds. I'm hoping that 2 animals per spread won't confuse them. Still worth a try!

4/14/11 The first group (~45) was too large that I couldn't keep much attention past a 3rd book. So this was only done with the second and smaller group. It went well. The very young wanted more to pull the flaps than to guess the animals and their sounds. But overall,

A peek-a-boo themed book with flaps exposing different farm animals. Teaches animals, as well as animal sounds. Sweet, but nothing special (2 stars). A baby story time read.

* Update review: while 10 month old Lucy didn't think much of this book, 22 month old Lucy thinks it is the most hysterical, best book she's ever read. She gives it all of the stars, so I'll average this with my previous review and give it 3 stars ;)

This is a regular sized picture book with almost full page sized flaps shaped like the animals. The flaps are of the animals covering their eyes playing peekaboo. When the animal is revealed it says, "Peek-a-Moo" or whatever sound that animal makes. Great fun for toddlers who are learning their animals sounds.

Brightly coloured, lift-the-flap book where children guess which animal is playing peek-a-boo. Simple, rhyming text, and interactivity make Peek-a-Moo! a great choice for the end of a toddler storytime, where the children's attention spans may be waning. I do prefer Peek-a Pet, but this title is a good second choice if the former is not available.

I found this book at my library with my 29 month old earlier today.
I also found and took out Peek-a-zoo and peek-a-pet by this author.
I thought we'd enjoy them because it reminded me of Do Cows Meow? by Salina Yoon
which we really enjoyed!
I thought the illustration could been a lot better but it was an okay book.
I don't think I'd buy it though.

Cute for storytime for toddlers. The interactive portion (flipping down the flaps) could get a bit competitive with a large or rowdy group. It's a bit fragile...the library copy I read was missing portions so it may not be the ideal choice for a library setting.

These "Peek-a-" books are great to share with young children, either in a story program setting or at home. Children love imitating animal sounds. Lots of "phonological awareness" opportunities here!

Baby loved the book, but I don't think it's tough enough to withstand the death grip he has. The pig and the duck have already suffered, but he really enjoys the peek-a-boo repetition and interactive nature. So, the destruction may be worth it...

Big bright pull down flaps show a variety of animals playing "Peek-a…" and you finish the phrase with the sound the animal makes: for example, "Peek-a-Oink!" when you see the top of a pig peeking out from behind the flap. Everyone had fun finishing the phrase with the animal sounds.

Another favorite book of my one year old. He loves peek-a-boo books and he loves animals. He loves it when you say the animal sounds as if you were that animal. The cow is his favorite and the duck makes him laugh.
Adorable.

This is a great book for storytime with ages 0-3. The flaps offer great print motivation, as well as an opportunity for guessing/prediction. The flaps are big enough to withstand a little love from the children too :)

This was a simple, charming book perfect for a toddler or lapsit storytime. The pop-out panels make it even more fun and it will help teach babies and toddlers animals sounds. The illustrations had bold colors and simple forms with lots of empty space.

This one is fabulous for the under 3 set. Everybody is absolutely enthralled when you pull down the flap, and of course, all of the noises that the animals make are just right for toddlers and babies.

Very cute, although the "rooster" just looks like a chicken, so I wouldn't guess it said cock-a-doodle-doo.
