Why We Love it? 

It’s so darn cute! Peek-A-Boo Barn is great for young kids because it’s so interactive and young children enjoy the repetitive nature of the app. The music and animal sounds are great for keeping the child’s attention and it also works to teach basic vocabulary. It’s an inexpensive resource that SLPs can use with their clients and is also suitable for parents to try with their children at home.
