Janet and Allan Ahlberg have written many books for babies and small children. One of them, Peepo is on our shelf of favourites. Also on those shelves is Each Peach Pear Plum which has a bit of fun with fairy tale characters. We have had it in board book and paperback for years, but it has just come out in a cuddly plush cloth book. It is in a gift box making it perfect as a gift for a new baby.
It is also a bit of a bargain, at $16.95.
PS. We put up a video of Allan Ahlberg reading Peepo on our Pinterest page. It’s well worth a look!
After the great success of our top tens for various age groups, we’ve recently had people telling us they’ve already got them all! So, as mentioned previously we’re adding to our tens, so here is the first Top Fifteen, Board Books for Babies.
