Here’s another great little find – I use this book a lot. Whether or not your little one is a Peppa fan, this is a delightful find for any toddler or younger child trying to get to grips with the clock and time in general. It is hard back, so nice and sturdy with extra thick pages so that repeated clock moving, as well as going back and forth figuring out at what time Peppa or George did what, is not going to ruin the day.
What’s it about:
Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig are taking you through their day from 7am in the morning to bed time at 8pm at night. Your little one can move the clock hands to the next hour and then see what is happening at 9am, 10am, 12noon, and through the afternoon until bedtime. Other characters of Peppa’s family and circle of friends come along too: Madame Gazelle invites the children to a picnic and Rebecca Rabbit makes an appearance in the park. At the end of the day, you can talk about toothbrushing and then snuggling up in bed. This might be a really nice book to have alongside an evening ‘bath-teeth-story-bed’ routine where you can go over the day’s events and move the clock hand as you go. (there is a satisfying clicking sound when you move the clock hands). It’s also really great for counting. All events are easy daily life routines that your little one will definitely know!
Peppa’s busy day is nicely written in the familiar Peppa-style, you can almost hear the ‘snort snort’ sound as you go!
