Praise For Peekity Boo--What You Can Do!

"This rhyming picture book follows a family through their toddler's bedtime routine. A calm, quiet book that children will find delightful, enjoying the repetition and seeing themselves through the eyes of a book."--Kirkus Reviews

"Writing in soft, rolling rhymes, Roemer walks through a toddler’s nighttime routine as doting parents alternate caretaking roles . . . Wohnoutka’s chalky art creates a sense of homey contentment—like a warm blanket."--Publishers Weekly
