Rainbow Colors Peekaboo!The 6 month selection from June 2010 - July 2011 (approx) The lift-the-flap pages and touch-and-feel features of this bright board book invite readers to play peekaboo with the children on the page.
|Age Group:||6 months|
Many children like to play peekaboo at this age enjoying the surprise as something hidden is revealed. As we know from playing peekaboo, much of a child's delight comes from the adult's facial expressions and excited words. This game can be played simply by hiding behind a hand or a blanket, and it can also be very exciting for a child when done in a book. That this book also has touch-and-feel elements adds to the interactive experience.
The text leads you through a great interactive conversation with your child. The book asks, "Where is the baby…?" and then allows you to answer the question by lifting the flap. You can exaggerate the word peekaboo as you would when playing the peekaboo game with your child. You can further point to all the colors on the page. For example, "The teddy bear has a red raincoat, the baby has a red raincoat, and look, there is a red umbrella." Have your child touch the red spots on the raincoat while you say the word red. The texture will help your child experience the color in a fresh way. You can also relate objects in the book to objects in your child's life. The baby in the book has a blue blanket. You can talk about your child's blanket and what color it is. All of these interactions build important relationships between objects and words in your child's brain.
