Flip through the pages of this fun Pee-A-Boo book to see who is waiting to spring out at you!


This is a daily favorite in my household. My little bookworm actively grabs it off of his bookshelf, and will just sit and stare longingly at it until dad or I sit down and read it to him. He LOVES this book. It’s a great for infants, particularly those who love to play peek-a-boo, a great game for babies for a number of reasons.

In addition to just being fun, peek-a-boo is a great way to teach babies about object permanence, to help babies with their separation anxiety by showing them that mom/dad goes away and always comes back, it also helps babies learn to lead the game. My little one likes to pull the blanket up over his head and then yank it down when we say “peek-a-boo!”

What I like about this book is that it’s a layered book. You guess who is hiding based on the design of the page. Each hole in the page leads to the animal/object in hiding. There are ghosts, owls, cows, trains and more.

Every Tuesday I’ll be featuring a different board book for the babies. Please leave a comment with your thoughts, or recommendations.
