Book review: Hatch and Babies

Big flaps and pop-up surprises!

Take a peek behind the big lift-the-flaps to discover the pop-up surprises in the charming POP AND PEEK series. Pop-up peekaboo books for babies and toddlers that explore simple animal concepts for gentle learning, interaction and lots of fun!

What animals will hatch from the eggs in Hatch?

Can you find the baby animals playing hide and seek in Babies?

Big lift-the-flaps are perfect for little hands, simple text invites little ones to peek at the pages and cute pop-up animals will delight the littlest readers.

With sturdy pages, and charming illustrations from Mel Matthews, the Pop and Peek series are stylish preschool pop-up books.

Who do we have to thank for these gorgeous books?

My thoughts…

These are such lovely books! My toddler has a lot of fun lifting the flaps and seeing baby animals come to life in front of her eyes. I love the choice of animals too – some more common than others and all very helpful to build her vocabulary. My baby is still too young to handle the book herself but her eyes widen in wonder when she sees all that beautiful illustrations. Both books are also great resources for anyone wishing to implement Montessori principles at home.
