Peekaboo, Baby!

Take a peek at this new novelty book Peekaboo, Baby! by Susan Amerikaner…

In Peekaboo, Baby! babies can actually play peek-a-boo with the adorable soft toy attached to the book. And there's a giant lift-the-flap on each spread for even more interactive fun. Tiny magnets in the paws of the soft toy make it possible for baby to actually play along with the story. So as baby lifts the flaps, they are prompted to play peekaboo with the kitty under her chair, little brother in the tub, Mama standing by her bed, and so on. The combination of the unique peekaboo soft toy with the lift-the-flaps will have babies wanting to peek at this story over and over again.
