Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Nina Laden's illustrations in this simple, rhyming board book are truly magical. The format is straightforward: on alternating two-page spreads, the words "Peek a" are repeated, opposite an illustrated page with a die-cut hole, behind which lurks a cow ("MOO!"), a green ghost ("BOO!"), and a mirror (you guessed it, "YOU!"). The youngest readers will delight in trying to guess who--or what--is peeking through the window, and can easily grip the baby-fist-size holes to turn the pages for the answers. The picture of the "ZOO!" is fabulous. Through the hole, all that can be seen is a wild pattern of colors, stripes, and spots. Turn the page, and find a wild kingdom of animals, one in front of the other: peacock, zebra, penguin, cheetah, elephant, and more. Ready for more peekaboo fun? Try Nina Laden's Ready, Set, Go! . (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-The exuberant illustrations in this guessing-game board book will enchant infants and toddlers. A bright left-hand page with the words "Peek a" faces a right-hand page with die-cut windows through which a visual clue can be seen. Turn the page and "Peek a MOO!" reveals a black-and-white cow; "Peek a BOO!" a green ghost; "Peek a ZOO!" a crowd of animals including an elephant, giraffe, zebra, etc.; and the final puzzle, "Peek a YOU," has a mirror insert. Vibrant colors with plenty of black outlines make this a charming visual treat for the youngest patrons.

I got this book as a gift for my daughter who was 8 months old at the time. From the first time we read it she was hooked! For the last month, we have read this book daily at least 15 times! She loves turning the pages and the rhyming really keeps her attention! The awesome thing is the she knows to turn the page after the rhyming word! So we dont have random page flipping! She loves the mirror at the end and looks into the peek a boo window so she can see her eyes then when we reveal the full mirror she gives herself a kiss! I love this book because my daughter can't get enough of it! I feel sorry for the rest of my book collection but I figure they will get their due attention in time.

Young children enjoy books that have pages to open and repeating punchlines. Peek-A-Who has both. It's also thankfully short for parents who have to read the book the large number of times.

My son has loved this book since we started reading to him at 3 or so months. He has learned to turn the pages (and since the text is so short, I can read it before he turns!) He loves the bright simple pictures and especially the mirror at the end. He always kisses himself, it is SO cute. Course, now he kisses anytime he sees his reflection. This book is wonderful for the simple text and great pictures and the predictablity (a great pre-reading skill!) Our son is 10 months and will sit and "read" it to himself now! A must have for any child's nursery.

When my son was 9 months old, I took him to a bookstore to try to find some new books for vacation. He really likes Karen Katz books, because he loves peek-a-boo and lifting the flaps. When I pulled Peek-a-Who off the shelf, he never wanted me to take it back! I love it because it uses the novelty of the peek-a-boo format, yet there are no flaps to lift and to rip. He ADORES this book, and its easy text and peek-a-boo holes are perfect for him. We have had this book for just over two months and it continues to be a favorite. In fact, it is the ONLY board book we own that looks like it could use a replacement because it is loved so much! I am adding more Nina Laden books to his Amazon wish list!

In looking for another whimsical, creative, offbeat baby book like Pat the Bunny I found that this title, among others, was purchased on Amazon by people who bought Pat. Because of the connection with Pat I was expecting something more than just five Peek-As, and also that every image would be tied together in a story.

The Peek-As are: Owl/Who, Cow/Moo, Ghost/Boo, Animals/Zoo, Train/Choo-Choo, and the predictable mirror/You. The cutouts through which you see part of the full image are the same angled peanut shape on every page.

I would have expected the partial views through and around the peanut cutout to contain interesting hints about the uncovered image that encourage the baby to reason a guess, not just to recall an associated design. Only the Zoo page really has anything approaching that (leaves and animal designs...but in that image the partial view of the giraffe looks like a quilt so it may be more confusing than helpful). I also saw a nice opportunity to shape the cutouts into something meaningful...perhaps a different cutout relating to each hidden Peek-A.

I gave this as many as two stars because baby's mom says that it will help her practice similar-sounding words and I like the graphics and title.

Our 6-month-old daughter squeals in delight every single time we read this book, and at every "Peek a..." page. It was her first book at 3 months, and is still top of her pop chart. We carry it around with us, not just for entertainment & distraction value but to use the mirror to check out how our baby's doing when she's in the backpack. Practical, fun, and beautiful -- what more could you want from a book?

Peek-A-Who is a memorable infant to toddler book that has a fun element of surprise. The rhymes are cute without being sappy and the simplistic language (though not babyish) is easily understood by little ones, and the book is short enough to hold their interest. It's also very colorful, offering visual stimulation. The simple rhymes lay the foundation for learning phonics. Great book - worth buying!
