Peekaboo Farm is a bright and attractive book. The big flaps and sturdy board are perfect for small hands to handle. Like the mum in this video, give your baby lots of time to explore the pages, practice opening and closing flaps, and turning the pages. The mum and baby in this video make a game out of saying ‘hello sheep’ and ‘bye-bye sheep’ as the flaps open and close – you could try games like this with your baby. And remember that you don’t have to read the book exactly as it’s written. Talk about the different animals on the page and follow your baby’s interests.
Once you’ve read the book, you could keep the farm animal theme going by singing Old MacDonald.
