Format: Board book
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.

I have raised four children and bought books for numerous nieces, nephews, and greats. Now my first grandchild is on the way, and rather than ask anyone to relinquish their childhood treasure (originally only available as a regular book), I decided to order another.

Here's the thing: you never know which book will turn into THAT book ("Read it again!") Don't burden yourself with an insipid children's book that will make you want to scream when you have to read it multiple times, or every single night. And that's the magic here. There's a peek-a-boo feature (a die cut in one page showing something on the following page), but there's also a richly detailed setting. For a long time, you will be finding new things on the page that you missed before. On top of that, we have an historical element, because the father wears a service uniform that I am guessing is WWII UK. There's a victory garden out back of the baby's home. There is so much here...and babies love it, love it, love it.

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!

Great illustrations and soothing, rhythmic cadence to the writing. There are subtle indications that the happy family depicted is experiencing a quiet day in wartime England, during or after the Blitz. An interesting detail, considering that no kids (and only so many adults) are going to pick up on these clues. Overall, the book gives toddlers a fun portrait of what any baby might see in daily life, while parents get a whiff of a somewhat deeper, almost nostalgic statement on the hard work and joy of family.

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!

This book is so cute, engaging (lots of little things to find), rhymes, and is fun to read. My daughter ruined her first one (dried milk = glue) so I just had to buy another. This book is in my top 5 for board books, and we have well over 100 board books at home.

I love this story. We have had a copy of the book for years. The writing is excellent. The story is excellent. The artwork is excellent! Sadly, the thickness/sturdiness of this board book was not quite as thick as other board books I have had in the past. Perhaps this is how they are now a days. I have not bought a board book in a few years.
