Publisher: Chronicle Books, 2015

Material: board book

Summary: Crick, crack! Glub, glub! Cheep cheep! Grrrrr! Who is making those sounds? Who is hiding under a wing, in an egg, behind a mask, or in a doll? Lift the panels to find out. This book is a guessing game for toddlers that will delight them as they lift the flaps to discover who's there. This is an interactive board book for toddlers.

Type of Reading: playtime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 2 to 4

Age of Child: Read with a 3-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl.

Young Reader Reaction: My kids thought it was cute and my three year old always enjoys an interactive flip panel book. The illustrations are funny and the panels are unexpected, so it was enough to keep their interest.

Adult Reader Reaction: I did like the book. I thought it was a funny and innovative take on the traditional guess and flip panel toddler books. I wasn't surprised that my kids liked it due to the bright colors and funny disguises, nor was I surprised that they did not request it again as it is a bit too young for them.

Pros: Bright colors, fun sounds, silly illustrations, and unique panels make this a fun book to share with toddlers.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This would be a good gift for a first birthday as it encourages toddlers to hold the book and look through themselves and it provides enough interest for them to return to it repeatedly.
