What did you like about the book?  Young readers are invited to play a game of peek-a-boo in this fun board book filed with sliders and bold graphic illustrations.  The slider  fun begins on the cover where little fingers can move the slider to revel a hidden worm in a bright red apple.  There is a peekaboo baby, dog, butterfly, duck and more. Many of the slides open out of the book and the final slide reveals a mirror to reveal “Peekaboo…You!”  The digital illustrations are full of color and fun and make this a a perfect choice for babies and toddlers.   

Anything you didn’t like about it?   No
