Desperately Seeking Presents: Where Is Baby's Christmas Present? by Karen Katz

Every baby loves variations on the old game of Peek-A-Boo. Every parent has played a related language-learning game. Where are your ears? Where is your mouth?

Karen Katz has a whole series of lift-the-flap board books based on this theme, the best-known of which is probably Where Is Baby's Belly Button?

Luckily for parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, Katz also has a holiday book, Where Is Baby's Present? (Little Simon) which offers the thrill of the hunt for little ones.

Where can baby's present be? Is it in the closet? No, but there are some interesting Christmas decorations inside. Underneath that pile of wrapping paper? Inside the nifty gingerbread house on the table? Under Baby's own pillow. No?


As older kids know, half the fun of the holiday season is looking for their Christmas presents, evaluating the size and weight, shaking them and listening to what's inside, and trying to guess what is going to be found. Katz' little board book, with six sturdy liftable flaps, give the youngest ones a chance to get in on that act during those exciting days before the night before Christmas.
