Why did we select this book?
We selected this title because Peek-a-boo is a great developmental game for babies. The act of hiding something and then revealing it sets off all sorts of healthy brain connections for young ones. Books with die-cut windows like this one can act just like a game of peek-a-boo. Hiding behind each one of the pages are bright and engaging illustrations, which just might make your child curious. Babies at this age are starting to understand how things go together. By repeating the same format over and over, your baby can start to figure out what will happen next and be delighted!
