This book can silence an audience of babies at fifty paces. A big claim, but I challenge you to test it out in any baby programmes you run in your library.
The illustrations are gorgeous with giant flaps to turn down, the text is simple and the audience will quite happily join you in making the animal noises. It’s always good to practise your moo-ing and baa-ing first, I recommend doing so loudly out the back in the workroom!
Pair it with some scarves and a peek-a-boo rhyme* or two and both you and your audience will have a blast.
Check out Peek-a-zoo at Auckland Libraries.
Or buy Peek-a-zoo from Fishpond.
Peek-a-boo Rhyme with scarves *

Where is baby? Where is baby?
There you are. There you are.
Where are you hiding? Where are you hiding?
