This is a classic by Dorothy Keunhardt. Paul and Judy play peek-a-boo, smell the flowers, look in the mirror, feel at a scratchy face and pat the bunny. The activities are in a book that allows the child to feel and experience the text and the subject. It contains surprises and easy-to-turn pages. It is a great gift. Here are Paul and Judy, they can do lots of things. You can do lots of things, too. Now you can pat the bunny. When you turn the page the bunny is soft and the child will enjoy the tactile sensation. There is a game of peek-a-boo, smelling flowers, looking in a mirror, feeling scratchy face sand paper, and reading a book, and putting a ring through the finger and saying good-bye.

This is a wonderful book published in 1940 originally and has endeared many millions of children ever since.
