Peppa Pig: Hide and Seek - Neville Astley
Advantages: Sturdy board book
Disadvantages: Flaps can be torn off
This Ladybird book was one of a pile given to us by a friend who was clearing out her daughters old books. My 2 year old girls love Peppa and this book is all about their favourite game, hide and seek. Peppa Pig is most famous for her TV series shown on Nick Jr and Channel 5 and has a huge range of merchandise due to her popularity with pre school age children.
This book is about 15cm x 15cm and so a nice size for my daughters to be able to hold. It is a board book and as such it has withstood the frequent readings involving being bent in ways it is not designed to do. As we are the second owners of this book the condition is not bad at all. Some of the flaps have required sellotape to mend them but they are all still fully functional and it makes the book looks well loved!
The story this book tells is that of a game of hide and seek played by Peppa Pig and her little brother George. As George is only little Mummy and Daddy pig have to help him, this makes the game much harder
for Peppa and gives your little one the chance to the many different shaped flaps to try and find them. My girls love lifting the flaps and this is why a few of them have needed to be mended.
The text is mainly in white bubbles on each page making it easy to read, there is also text on the back of the flaps. Not all the pages have flaps and my girls used to find this confusing as they felt around the page for something to lift. Now as the understand the story better they know the difference between the pages where the hiding is happening and those where they are looking for Peppa or George.
This book has helped to get both my girls interested in hide and seek. It's helped with them learning to count and they will now tell me to hide, count to 10 and like Peppa shout 'Coming, ready or not!' 2 little people then come over to where I'm badly hidden and shout 'found you!'
Price and availability
This book is sadly no longer available to buy new but Amazon do have used copies available from £2.81 including p&p.
Would I recommend?
Yes, it's a lovely story which with the flaps to keep little ones interested is just the right length as they move onto longer books.
