Peek-a-Boo, I Love You! Book Review - Valentine's Day Board Books

Share the LOVE of reading! Board books are one of my favorite gifts to give babies and toddlers for Valentine's Day. There are so many cute books. Here's a review and a few other favorites:

----------------------------------------------------------------

"And who's that right there, as cute as can be...The sweetest baby in the world to me!"
- Peek-a-Boo, I Love You! by Sandra Magsamen

This book is for all the "soft-hearted" readers! Peek-a-Boo, I Love You! by Sandra Magsamen was just released this January. The book is part of the snuggle-me stories series, and the front cover features a soft, puff-padded blue heart puppy. My little guy loves to touch and squish the blue heart with his fingers. He also loves playing peek-a-boo with the animals under the lift-the-flap pages. Kids can raise the 5 flaps to find a brown bear, a puppy with an eye patch, a sleeping kitty cat, one adorable cow and a heart shaped mirror. The illustrations show each animal with heart shaped markings. Our favorite is the cow with the heart spots and heart tail. Gotta like cows when you live in America's Dairyland! The author, Sandra Magsamen, has a gorgeous artsy-crafty website if you've got time to do a little browsing. http://www.sandramagsamen.com

Peek-a-Boo, I Love You!, by Sandra Magsamen; LB Kids (January 2009); 10 pages; ISBN 9780316003896
