Baby's Peek-A-Boo Album

Brenda Jackson, Ronald L. McDonald, Debra Meryl. Grosset & Dunlap, $12.95 (20pp) ISBN 978-0-448-15375-9

In yet another twist on the perennially popular lift-the-flap concept, this winsome book provides space under each flap for snapshots of a favorite baby or toddler. Young readers will have fun hunting for the baby hidden in each of the familiar, cheerfully colored settings--such as bedroom, kitchen, bathtub--as well as for themselves. It's a clever idea, and thanks to the winning combination of Meryl's sweetly rhyming text and Kelley's ( Look, Baby! Listen, Baby! Do, Baby! ) sprightly bordered illustrations, it manages to avoid being gimmicky. Ages 1-3. (Oct.)
