Storytime: Peek! A Thai Hide-and-Seek

Assalamu alaikum,

Today we read, Peek! A Thai Hide-and-Seek, by Minfong Ho

Oh! This is a very cute story! The father in the story pretends to ask each animal he encounters if they have seen his daughter who is hiding. In the story there is one word, "Jut-ay" (pronounced as "Shut" and "A" in ABC) that begins each sentence where the father asks an animal if it has seen his daughter. From what I could discover, Jut-Ay means morning has come in Thai. The story has a flowing rhyme that is playful and bouncy, making it fun to read aloud.
