Peek-a-Book, I See Who? by Steve Elkins

Today’s book is Peek-A-Boo, I See Who? written by Steve Elkins and illustrated by Rod Hefferan. I’ve been focusing on well-known, obviously popular picture books in these reviews, so I’m taking a different stride in today’s post. This adorable board book with fold-out pages also comes with a CD, so if you can scrounge up a player...bonus? (The author also produced the music to accompany the story.) It was quite a steal from Mardel for only $5! Each page has sweetly rhyming prose on the left-hand side which give clues to the “guess who” question on the right. The child lifts the flap to see which Bible character is the featured answer. The final page and poem-riddle leads the reader to ask who is a loved blessing & heaven-sent miracle. **drumroll** YOU!! That’s why this makes a great book for parents to read to their child; it reminds me of books by Marianne Richmond (which you KNOW I adore!)
