We’re lucky to be part of a generation of super involved and invested dads. “Peek! A Thai Hide-and-Seek” portrays a loving father/daughter relationship through imaginative writing and illustration within a lush, cultural context. Minfong Ho creates a catchy and playful rhyme scheme engaging a host of jungle creatures; Holly Meade’s watercolor and cut-paper collage work is a feast for eyes of all ages.
“Peek!” lists as appropriate for ages 4-8 but much younger babes will love listening to the rhyme scheme, naming the jungle animals, and finding the hiding toddler on each page.
