This oversize board book by a favorite illustrator, Jan Ormerod, is great fun to look at and provides plenty of things for baby to do, too. Baby's favorite game comes alive with exuberant tots peeping from behind bright flaps. On each spread, a baby hides his or her face with a bib, a teddy bear, a pair of mittens. When readers pull the flaps down, the baby peers out with a broad smile. And there, too, is the punch line that never fails to delight little ones: PEEK-A-BOO! Jan Ormerod captures the toddlers in her charming, uncluttered style, showing just enough of baby's world to make young readers feel right at home.

Born in Australia, Jan Ormerod has been writing and illustrating books for children since moving to the UK in 1980. Her warm and friendly evocations of everyday toddler life are widely popular and have brought her widespread recognition. She is particularly well-loved in the United States, and has also won the major UK Mother Goose award for her first book. She has twice been short-listed for the prestigious Kate Greenaway medal.From Kirkus Reviews:
From Ormerod (Ms. MacDonald Has a Class, 1996, etc.), a good candidate for a baby's very first book; this board book shows seven little ones, all races, all smiles, hiding behind items such as mittens, a bib, a stuffed toy, and a towel; every spread asks the question, ``Where's the baby?'' A fold-down flap (located in the same spot on every spread, supplying the predictability needed by this age group) discloses the baby's face and the various rhyming answers. Even the cover has its own, heavier flap. The last spread is different: ``Snuggle down, baby . . . Sleep time for you!'' The uncluttered illustrations show the babies against plain pastel backgrounds, making this simple, happy fare for the very youngestwhat a good idea to build a book around this universal infant game.
