Description

Who better to introduce babies to the alphabet than Sheree Fitch? In Peek-a-Little Boo twenty-six babies and toddlers from all over the world romp and revel in the twists and turns of language, real and imagined. The story is as multicultural as the alphabet will allow it to be. The pictures are big, bright and bold. And the language is guaranteed to appeal to babies' ears and grown ups' tongues.
