In this rhyming peek-a-boo book, flaps are lifted to reveal bold, fun illustrations. This is a delightful, interactive read-aloud for young ones.

Age Group 9 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to ‘choose’ a bedtime book by reaching for it
  • Beginning to look towards items you point to
  • Enjoying hiding for peekaboo
  • Imitating sounds

Your baby is likely developing some favorite books. They may even present you with what they want you to read when you hold up a couple of choices of books. Their attention span is getting longer so they may be able to enjoy a book with a couple of sentences to the page. They may also start pointing to things when you ask a question such as, ”Where’s the bunny?” Peekaboo is a favorite game as your dear one is just now starting to learn about how permanent things are. Will you still be behind your hands when you say Peekaboo? Oh good! It’s you!

Why did we select this book?

Peek-a-boo isn't a baby's favorite game just by chance. When caregivers leave the room or leave for the day, it is important for babies to know that the caregiver will return. The game of peek-a-boo teaches babies that objects and people go away and come back. Because of this, we include at least one peek-a-book book in the collection. We were delighted to find a peek-a-boo that also includes such clever rhymes and such bright and bold illustrations.

You will notice that on the last page of the book, there is a photograph of a father and a child. Use that space to paste in a picture of your own. The picture could be of you, your child, or both of you. You can change the photo to different people your child knows so that your child will experience a sweet anticipation each time you reach for the book. Anticipation is a great thing in books as it creates wonderful activity in the brain and creates a strong attachment to books in general.
