Take a Look, Buzz

Liesbet Slegers. Clavis (IPG, dist.), $11.95 (12p) ISBN 978-1-60537-168-9

A nifty bit of engineering allows the pages of this board book to slide out, revealing animals and objects hiding within. “What a beautiful flower,” writes Slegers opposite a thickly painted tulip. “Could there be something inside? Take a look!” Pulling the facing page outward exposes the chubby bee that’s smiling happily inside the flower. Elsewhere, a bird hides in an apple tree, a yellow chick inside an egg, and the sun behind a cloud. Friction can impede the sliding motion at times, but it’s a diverting game to discover what’s hiding within the book’s pages. Simultaneously available: Take a Look, Bear. Up to age 3. (Sept.)
