Peek-a-boo! I love you - laughing, crying - or just being you! An endearing text and photographs of babies in their many moods give this delightful old game new meaning. Laughing, crying, pouting, thinking, yawning, and smiling are portrayed in pictures and text, so that babies will learn to connect the expression with the word that describes it.

Age Group 4 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to swipe at books
  • ‘Helping’ turn pages by batting at the book
  • Laughing and making more sounds including back and forth ‘conversations’

Your baby is much more aware of the world around them now. They can turn their head toward sounds and smile or frown in response to things they hear. They’re also working to have control of their arms and hands. They may reach toward a book as you read it and try to grab it themselves. Making sure books are always within reach can help them with this. Continue to read to them and start to gently guide their hand to pat the pictures as you talk about what’s on the pages. Making reading time interactive will be thrilling for them!
