Undercover: The Christmas Pop-Up Peekaboo! by Dawn SiretteDaw
AT CHRISTMAS TIME THE BUSY ELVES
HAVE LOTS OF WORK TO DO.
A REINDEER SHOULD BE HELPING,
BUT HE'S PLAYING PEEKABOO!
And Reindeer is not the only one!
In Dawn Sirett's Pop-Up Peekaboo: Christmas! (DK Books, 2013), Mr. Snowman hides behind a big snowball, a Christmas fairy hides at the top of the tree, a robin hides with a sprig of mistletoe, and Santa comes through with a bulging stocking that opens to reveal a plush dog, a top, and a big candy cane.
Lift the flaps and these Christmas favorites pop right up. Tots love surprises and there are plenty of well-designed popups to delight, and the artful script of this toy book provides plenty of opportunity for little ones to practice their predicting skills as they are urged to guess what may be hiding inside the scenes. Artist Susan Culver's illustrations are full of holiday spirit, and DK's book design is well-paced to keep little eyes and hands engaged in the seasonal discoveries inside this entry in Dorling Kindersley's excellent Peekaboo series. For toddler stocking stuffers, pair this one with Usborne's That's Not My Santa....
