Your little one is much more coordinated and can really grab onto things these days and not just your hair! They’re excited to get into the books you’re sharing and are increasingly able to handle the pages of board books. They’re also likely starting to drool and chew on things as their new teeth break through. It’s absolutely fine that your dear one is chewing on books now.

Why did we select this book?
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.
This book invites you to have great interactive conversations 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 also 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. 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.
