Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–A delightful companion to Ho and Meade's Hush! A Thai Lullaby (Orchard, 1996), this title features a father and daughter playing "Jut-Ay." The setting is once again a lush jungle, but this time the animals' participation is encouraged, rather than discouraged. As Papa searches for his little one, he encounters a variety of noisy creatures and playfully responds to each one: "Jut-Ay, peek-a-boo,/Oh, puppy dog, it's just you!/Sniff behind that rattan chair./Is my baby crouching there?" From the rhymed verses and onomatopoeia to the nearly hidden toddler in each spread, this story is brimming with child appeal. Done in watercolor and cut-paper collage, the exuberant illustrations convey the energy of the high jinks and the girl's satisfaction at being found. Children will want to look for each creature in the final cozy scene. Small groups and individuals alike will enjoy this enticing offering. Pair it with Jose Aruego's We Hide, You Seek (Greenwillow, 1979) and Suse MacDonald's Nanta's Lion (Morrow, 1995) for a storytime of international proportions.–Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Rhyming text and collage art invite participation in this cultural twist on a familiar childhood game, from the creators of Hush! A Thai Lullaby (1996). Just as American seekers might say "Peek-A-Boo," Thai seekers say "Jut-Ay" when they look for someone in hiding. Here, a father looks for his daughter, who hides in various places in their home and in their garden. The textured collage illustrations evoke a tropical setting and showcase animals indigenous to Thailand. Papa comes across creatures everywhere he looks: a dragonfly in the house, a rooster in the yard, a puppy on the porch. The phonetic sounds, such as the monkey's "Jiak-jiak" or the puppy's "Hru-hruu!" look strange spelled out on the page, but they are completely apt when read out loud. In fact, little ones may want to chime in as they join Papa's search among fronds, leaves, and lily pads. Diane Foote

What a beautiful book! The illustrations are really lovely and the pages (we have the hardback) even feeeeel good. My 21 month son LOVES this book. He enjoys the different animals and points them out by naming them and making the different sounds they make. He also looks for the baby and the daddy. My 5 year old also enjoys the book and is now playing Jut Ay with her baby brother.

I'm just so delighted with this book and right after I finish this review, I'll be buying Hush! A Thai Lullabye.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book just because my son loved Minfong Ho and Holly Meade's other book, "Hush! A Thai Lullaby." This one is very similar with a few differences. The illustrations are a little brighter! The father is interacting with his daughter in a game of peek-a-boo, rather than the mother hushing animals so her son can sleep! There are mostly different animals in this book with a couple of repeats. While the father is searching for his daughter he encounters a dog, dragonfly, rooster, snake, monkey, elephant, tiger, turtle, hornbill and crocodile! On each page the little girl is hiding and my 20 month old son loves to show you where she is! Beautiful illustrations with a fun interactive story are keys to a winner for my child. 5 stars again for Ho/Meade!

My daughter got this book for her second birthday. We had never heard of it before then. It is now her bedtime book, replacing Goodnight Moon. The story is pretty simple, but sweet. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. My daughter loves trying to find the baby on every page. Now that she knows where the baby is, she still plays and pretends with it. She likes to find the different animals, especially the "croc-oh-di-al." I plan to look at other books by this author and illustrator. I like that it's a daddy and daughter book too.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my 4yo and 2.5 yo, based on a recommendation from their Montessori school. Both kids love it, and I've since heard them using some of the animal "sounds" from the book in the course of their daily play. My little one loves finding the baby hiding on each page. I would also highly recommend the companion book -- Hush! A Thai Lullaby. We would give that one 6 stars!

The illustrations in this book are vivid and beautiful. A father and daughter play hide and seek in the Thai jungle, surrounded by wild animals and lush vegetation. My 18 month old loves searching for the little girl in all of her hiding places and then seeing the joy of the parent and child when they find each other at the end. What child doesn't enjoy a good game of peekaboo?

Beautiful illustrations, I got this book for a friend of mine from Thailand who just had a baby. She had so many memories that now she can share with her baby girl. My kids (4 yr. old B/G twins) love the book.
