Miglis, Jenny. Peekaboo, Blue! (published in 2004 by Simon Spotlight, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing Division, 1230 Avenue of the Americas, New York City, NY 10020). Little children love to play peekaboo. In this board book from the “Baby Blue’s Clues” series based on the Nickleodeon television show, Blue the Dog is looking for Periwinkle the Cat, Magenta the Dog, Purple Kangaroo, and other friends. There are five colored cloth flaps to lift and find the animals. Who’s under the last flap? When they were toddlers, our boys seldom watched Blue’s Clues on television because we never had cable. However, they dearly loved books like this. With Peekaboo, Blue!, youngsters are not only playing and having fun but also being introduced to colors and different animals, as well as exploring a world of various textures.
