What Are You Reading?

Peekaboo Bedtime is a bedtime favorite! After seeing the cover of this book I just had to buy it!! Great book for the kiddos...


—The adorable tot from Isadora's Peekaboo Morning (Putnam, 2002) is back in this getting-ready-for-bed story. As in the previous book, the child exclaims in big, bold letters, "Peekaboo! I see…," leading readers to turn the page to find the person or object of the game. Bright pictures, done with pastels, add to the fun as the child spies grandparents, parents, pets, a rubber duck, "my blankie," and finally, from atop the bed, "you!" Youngsters will enjoy searching for visual clues as they play along with the familiar toddler activity.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

From Booklist
A companion book to Isadora’s Peekaboo Morning (2002), this upbeat picture book follows an African-American toddler through an evening at home. After going outside to spot the moon with family members, the child comes back indoors to have a snack, a bath, and a story. As in the previous book, each right-hand page carries a picture accompanied by the words “Peekaboo! I see . . . ,” while the following page identifies what the child saw, such as “my daddy,” “my puppy,” or “my slippers.” After the first few pages, the book’s audience can use visual clues to guess what the child is seeing. Heavily applied pastels create a warm, colorful family setting for the story. This pleasant book is well designed to engage young children in talking about the illustrations as well as playing their own peekaboo games. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and are enjoying the beginning of the Holiday Season. We’ve kicked off a couple of new programs that I think you and your blog readers would be interested in. Recently, we’ve teamed up with Nice ‘n Easy and Tide to start some really great sampling programs. Qualifying members will receive the products for free to try out and tell us what they think.

Nice ‘n Easy is launching a brand new product this winter. We are inviting our members, and your readers to apply for this program. If they qualify, they will get to sample a full size of this new product before it’s even been announced!

Later this week we are kicking off a program with Tide. Participants will get to sample the Tide Washing Machine Cleaner for FREE. Stay tuned for launch details. Let me know if you want me to follow up with you when it has been officially kicked off.

There are awesome opportunities for your readers to get free product and tell the brands what they think. If you have any questions about the Tryology Programs or how they work, let me know or check out http://bit.ly/Tryology12.

If you write about this opportunity, be sure to let me know at tryology.expo@expotv.com! We will help promote it. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

I'm writing this title down to purchase for my daughter and nephew. As an author, I love getting new children's books. Thanks for the recommendation.
