A relative from England gave us this book for our baby. Both our kids loved the "peek-a-poo" theme and the extremely engaging narrative pictures. I love that it's showing life in a different era, which became a topic of discussion as the kids got a little older. I don't know why this book doesn't seem quite as successful as the big hit board books, as it's so charming and small kids really love having it read to them.

My toddler adores this book and can read it by heart. The pictures are delightful!!! A classic for years to come.

We cannot put this book down. My daughter loves to count as I read and knows exactly when to say 'Peek a boo'. We try to find the pictures through the die cut hole in each page. It is a fun and interactive book for both my children. My four year old has it memorized and reads it to her sister.

This book is, I believe, a British import. The language has changed to be more consistent with American usage, though.My nieces love this book, they love counting "One, two, three - PEEK-A-BOO!" with me and pointing at things through the cut-out holes in the book. I don't have any problems with the book (except one scene where, confusingly, the image shown in a mirror in no way reflects what's really going on. Very odd, and I wonder if the mirror was originally intended to be a photograph), however some people might have trouble explaining some of the more old-fashioned imagery.Many of us nowadays are going back to hanging clothes outside, so that's all right, and a clothes-horse for indoor drying is okay, and a bucketful of coal is explainable, and... well, it does add up. If you have a very inquisitive sort of child, you might get tired of answering all their questions, that's all. (On the other hand, knowledge of different things broadens the mind.)So I took off one single star.
