Review:

Another classic from Janet & Allan Ahlberg, PeePo! was first published in 1981 and has delighted parents and toddles ever since. Peepo! has so many elements guaranteed to appeal to young children - rhyme, repetition and the inclusion of every day objectives. The story not only centres on the day and life of a little baby, but also allows us to really see things through his eyes--with a circle cut out of the pages allowing both the storybook baby and young readers to "peek" through to life on the next page.

Peepo! is set in the 1940s, giving us a nostalgic look at a time gone by--complete with tin baths, coal sheds and hot porridge. The family life described is happy, warm and loving. The illustration style is suitably 1940's and also very full. The verse often refers to objects hidden deep within the illustration which children will love seeking out. (Ages 1 to 5 years.) --Victoria MacKenzie
