What did you like about the book? These two board books are filled with color, easy to use slides, and a surprise mirror. In Peekaboo Bear, children manipulate the slides to reveal hiding animals including squirrels, a bee, ladybugs, birds, a bunny and a bear before a pull tab reveals a mirror for “Peekaboo…you!” Peekaboo Sun includes a wheel of colorful “fishies” and slides that reveal the sun, ice-cream, a crab, and other seaside surprises. On the final page a tab reveals a mirror behind a beach ball! Both books are filled with bright colorful digital illustrations that will delight little ones.
