I knew since I was pregnant that I wanted to install the love of books to our son. Our wish for him was to yearn learning and a passion for reading. In my research, I learned that starting as early as possible was key to achieving this. Therefore to this day we are always constantly searching and buying books we believe he will enjoy and are educational. We are currently on a reading nook so stay tuned for that reveal! I know when our son loves a book because he wants it read over and over! He selects the book himself, brings it over while making persistent sounds and then sits on my lap. Seriously cutest thing. Well when I first discovered Peek-a-bear book, I instantly knew it would be a hit with my son as he loves particularly interactive play. He is so curious about life and animation that he demonstrates it vocally and physically. He claps and yelps in excitement. That is exactly the reactions moms look for to ensure it is to our little ones satisfaction. We I can confidently tell you, Peek-a-bear nailed it.
From award-winning author, Jill Mangel Weisfeld, Peek-a-bear has won 5 awards including a Gold Medal in the Mom’s Choice Awards, a gold medal in the Purple Dragonfly Awards and a silver medal in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. Peek-a-bear keeps children intrigued while navigating through the color pages on a quest to discover what is hidden behind flaps and curtains similar to the game of pee-a-boo. My son as his very early, impatient age, rushes to open the flaps before I can finish reading the page. We truly laugh with excitement as if we were playing a game.
The book is hardcover with very thick pages appropriate for young children. As a mom, these type of details matter as we worry about paper cuts for instance. Durability is as important as well while babies and young toddlers have not grasp delicacy and often toss books in and out if containers. It is very colorful! Vibrant, warm and cool colors that draw your attention instantly. The imagery is fit to attract a young readers heart.
Peek-a-bear delivers! It has become one of baby boys favorite books, so much that I have it memorized. If he could speak, he would as well. I invite you take a look for yourself and recommend getting it for your child (dren), grand babies, or any young child in your life you’ll love to bring a smile to. What I absolutely love that most is that a percentage of all book sales go to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. ❤ You can get more information and order your book HERE.
