Serious learning, simple game
The game peek-a-boo is present in many cultures. Why is this? It’s a game that engages and entertains babies while teaching them about the world. Your baby learns that you can disappear and come back—and that some activities have regular patterns (which helps your baby learn to predict!). Peek-a-boo also gives your child experience with interpreting facial expressions—like happy and surprised—which helps her connect meaning with these expressions.
