Who Was That?
Written & illustrated by Olivier Tallec
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-5

This fresh, visually sophisticated follow-up to Who Done It? and Who What Where? tackles the topic of memory, as each page asks the reader to remember a detail about the characters featured on the page before. With die-cuts, clever folds, and imaginative illustrations, this book requires the sharpest readers’ keen attention! The call to action on every page makes this a wonderful lap read or read-aloud, and kids of all ages will love the memory games.

Where's Boo?
Written & illustrated by Salina Yoon
board book
Recommend Ages: 0-3

Where’s Boo? is a guessing game in board book form. Very young readers will love searching for Boo the black cat among familiar Halloween characters and objects—and finding something unexpected instead. Each page offers a hint of Boo, but it isn’t until the last page that readers will find him. And when they do, they’ll want to start all over and do it again!

What's Up Penguin?
Written & illustrated by Cocoretto
board book
Recommend Ages: 0-3

What are the animals up to? There are lots of clues to help us decide, and we can lift the flap to see if we’re right. A playful way to exercise reasoning, prediction and memory skills, featuring colourful, high-contrast illustrations.

Guess Which Hand
Written by Hans Wilhelm & illustrated by Ilaria Guarducci
board book
Recommend Ages: 2-4

Kids know the drill: Two hands are closed, and there’s something hidden in one palm. Which hand is it? This novelty board book brings the classic guessing game to life in a playful new way! Children turn an interactive “wheel” to hide a variety of objects (a bone, fish, ladybug, flower, and more) under flaps (hands, paws, hats, seashells, ears) on every spread. All that’s left is to wager a guess and lift the flap for the reveal!

Indestructibles: Baby Peekaboo
Written by Amy Pixton & illustrated by Kate Merritt and Amy Pixton
board book
Recommend Ages: 0-2

It’s the little series that could: Indestructibles are innovative books built for the way babies read. Printed on a unique, nontoxic, paperlike material that holds up to anything babies throw at them, Indestructibles are rip proof, chew proof, drool proof and gum proof. They’re 100% baby safe—and they’re washable. When a book gets dirty, just throw it in the dishwasher or washing machine, and voilà, the book is back and ready for more.

Featuring the second set of titles by Kate Merritt, whose distinctive and colorful collage illustrations are as adorable to parents as they are to babies, here is a new Indestructibles that is a joy to read aloud. Baby Peekaboo celebrates the favorite playtime game while teaching the concept of object permanence. “Who’s hiding behind the toys? Peekaboo! It’s Puppy!” Simple, engaging text encourages language development, and each spread is filled with sweet details.
