"Peek-a-Moo" by Marie Torres Cimarusti

I've decided to share some of my kids' favorite books here, since it can be so hard to wade through the millions of children's books and figure out which one are worth reading or buying.  Today, I'm posting about a book that Mercedes received for her birthday a few years ago, and that Abigail now loves as much as Mercedes did at her age.  It's called Peek-a-Moo by Marie Torres Cimarusti.

The concept is simple -- different barnyard animals play "peek-a-boo," except they say things like "peek-a-oink" or "peek-a-baa," according to what sound they make.  You get to pull their paws down to reveal their faces, which is great fun, and this is a fun way to learn the different noises animals make too.

The pictures are bright and simple, and this is a great book for babies and toddlers.  We often read it 4 or 5 times in a row because Abigail loves it so much.
