Peek-a-Boo Zoo

Joyce Wan. Scholastic/Cartwheel, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-75042-4

Flaps turn downward to reveal the faces of seven zoo animals in this winsome board book. Working in her characteristic aesthetic of rounded, chunky shapes, Wan assembles a cute-as-can-be cast that includes a penguin, hippo, and more. (Tiny upside-down hearts appear in the ears of a bear, lion, and tiger—no scary predators in this bunch.) Brief rhymes provide clues about each animal’s identity (“I swing from the vines/ and play in the trees./ I have a long tail/ and hang by my knees”). A fun addition to the book-as-game category. Up to age 3. Agent: Teresa Kietlinski, Prospect Agency. (June)
