Moo Peek-a-Boo aids the development of early coordination by encouraging babies to reach for the giant fold-out flaps to find out who is hiding underneath - peek-a-boo! It also aids the development of their understanding of object permanence, which is when they realise that just because they can no longer see something does not mean it has disappeared. Babies will react with delight as the pictures of favourite farmyard friends are revealed, while the simple text prompts parent interaction.The perfect first book to share with your baby!
