Peekaboo Bugs by David A. Carter
If you have a small child these books will engage them like no others. David A. Carter has created multiple pop-up books, many of which are now out of print but can be found online. For Easter my mother gave my daughter Peek-a-boo Bugs. This is probably my favorite in his collection having read them all. This book tackles colors in an interactive fashion. Each page has a color and you have to find the same colored bug on that page; the hitch being that the bug is hidden behind the flaps. Now, this book would become tiresome quickly if not for the fact that the bug is placed on a wheel that you spin each time you read the story, hiding the bug in a different spot. To keep this book in good condition longer, simply put a piece of tape on the fold of each flap. This book is a treasure.
