Good Reading for Christmas by Philippa Gregory...
'To the children in my life, I will give Peepo!, the great classic by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, where the England of the Second World War is seen through a baby’s eyes. I adore the memorable text and evocative wartime illustrations.'
The Lovereading view...
Fabulous illustrations, wonderful rhyming text with not a word out of place; this is a book that no nursery bookshelf can be without. This sturdy board book is guaranteed to have huge appeal with babies and young toddlers. It’s definitely the kind of book that will live long in the mind of children and parents for it’s a pleasure for parents to read and children to listen to or as they get older read for themselves.
This work follows a baby through the day. A series of holes peeping through to the next page leads the young child on to the next stage of the day, giving a hint of what is to come.
