Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent book for babies and toddlers This really is the best book for babies! It's a cute story about how a baby spends his day. Our babies loved the rhyming and the peekaboo effect. I loved the beautifully detailed illustrations that were great for building vocabulary. We love it!

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently. Seen from a baby's-eye-view of the world, this delicious board book features strategically placed peepholes which open to the next page to revel the full scene. A sleeping dad (as seen through the peephole) opens to include a messy bedroom, with mum in hairnet, clothes spilling from drawers and scattered toys. Through a peephole we see a little girl climbing on a coal pile. Open the page to reveal a garden, a backyard loo, neighbouring houses, and a mother washing windows. Through a peephole we see Granny ironing a shirt. We open the page and discover mum asleep with the cat on her lap, sister running through the living room, and dad pouring tea. The tone is very English and comfortably domestic, and luscious details abound -- the clutter of sentimental objects, clothes drying by the fire, pets underfoot, and the tangle of generations living in a house that feels like home. Rhythmic verse captures both Baby's contentment and the pulse of loving, ordinary family life. Ages 1-3.
