Both I and my 1-year old love this book.

It's already a favorite author from a gift at Christmas, so when I saw another board book by the same author I knew he had to have it.

I love the very detailed but naturally colored illustrations: so many baby books are full of loud and unnatural colors.

Toddlers love to look through the hole on each sturdy page to see part of the another picture, and the text is short enough to keep up with their short attention span, yet is fun for the parent to read- the text has a nice rythem. Also , the pictures have great detail which adults and older children will enjoy. I love the little bits of humor in the pictures: the fighting sisters, the stray safety pin on the mom and dad's dresser, the tired mom who fell asleep during tea....

This is a delightful book for young children, like others of the Ahlbergs. What distinguishes this one is that it is set in World War II England, in a crowded working-class home. It was fun for me, when reading this to my child, to look at the way people lived in that place and time. Each picture is full of details that children like to find.

This book is great to start teaching your child the old game of peek-a-boo. The book is about what a little baby sees through the day. The baby can see through the circular cut holes through to the next page. Each page is a different scene in the day in the life of the family. To me it is amusing to see just how cluttered the family in the story is.
All three of my children have liked this book. It is worth the purchase!

We picked up a flimsy paperback copy of this book when our eldest was 1 year old, and she loved it literally to pieces. After many tape repairs, we all still enjoyed the charming old-fashioned drawings of everyday life in wartime England, through the eyes of a baby. When we found the board book for our second child, we were very pleased.

I love the very detailed but naturally colored illustrations: so many baby books are full of loud and unnatural colors. And the rhyming text feels good to read out loud. Even after many repetitions, the verse is still fun to say and has a certain richness which keeps it interesting for parents. How many board books use phrases like "Grandma pegging washing on the clothesline to be dried," or "He sees his mother dozing in the easy chair"?

This is a book I will miss when my littlest outgrows it.

My 23-month old daughter LOVES this book! We read it several times each day. She especially loves the pictures...they are very intricate with a lot going on in each. I highly recommend the hardcover version...would stand up to the many reads!

I bought this for my daughter when she was 1 yr. old but she was not interested. Now at 17 mos. old she won't go to bed until we read this book. All I have to say is "go get peek-a-boo" and she runs into her room and grabs the book. If read in a low key voice this book works great at night because the last page has the baby in his crib ... what did he see? It's a very sweet and different book for young children.

We first picked this book up almost by accident at the library. My three boys (ages 20 mos. to 4 yrs) already knew and loved Each Peach Pear Plum by the Ahlbergs, and after renewing Peek-A-Boo three times we decided we needed our own copy!
My youngest son (20 mos.) loves to chime in on the "one two three" and "peek-a-boo's" and the older boys are fascinated with the detailed illustrations. It's altogether an outstanding book for the toddler/preschool bunch.

We've been reading this book to our baby since he was two months old, and he's been enchanted with it since then. He turns the pages and stares at the detailed drawings filled with interesting people and things. We like the rhythm of the text, and it's easy to make up new verses about baby lying under the tree in the backyard or on the changing table. Very well done!
