Peepo Baby! Is a children's board book by Georgie Birkett. This book has five double pages of peepo fun with big chunky flaps that little ones will love to turn. Each double page consists of a picture of a baby playing peepo, for example the first page has a baby looking through a car window with the words "Who's behind my big blue car?" where when you turn the flap shaped like a car you find a picture of a teddy and the words "Peepo Teddy! There you are".
We got this book free through the bookstart scheme but it is currently for sale on Amazon for £3.99.
I find my son likes me to read this book to him, and as he is only six months old I help him to turn the flaps and pages. He particularly likes the bright contrasting colours. I find this book especially good to read just before nap time, as it seems to help my son to settle down just before he has a sleep.
Although this is a board book with well rounded corners so no paper cuts and easily wiped clean when little ones decide to have a chew, I feel the pages and flaps are bit too thin and could easily be bent out of shape or completely ripped out when my son is a little older and playing / reading on his own.
I would have liked the book to also have some textures for the younger ones to feel and explore but overall I think this book is an excellent addition to any child's bookshelf.
Summary: A great book for little hands to explore.
