Peekaboo Zoo illustrated by Kate Merritt (Ladybird)

"Peekaboo Zoo" is a lovely first lift-the-flap book for babies and young toddlers. Turn each page to find a wild animal hidden under a flap. Read the funny, rhyming text and try to guess which animal is hidden! There is a mirror on the last page, so baby can have the excitement of finding themselves in the picture! The classic game of peekaboo is brought to life in this gorgeous book, perfect as a gift for babies and young children.
I love this book!! It is perfect for young children and babies alike. Based on the game peekaboo there are four animals playing peekaboo in the book; an elephant, a giraffe, a monkey and tiger. There is also a fifth page with a mirror for the child to play peekaboo!

This is a board book with the usual cardboard flaps - however the flaps are hands, ears, bananas or leaves and are involved in the picture. The wording of the book is also great, a sing song rhyme which will, along with the game, keep children wanting the book again and again!
This book would make a lovely gift for a baby or young child and make story time a fun time for both child and adult.
Thank you to Ladybird books for sending me this book to review.
