Book!

Books can be for silly times or quiet, for reading alone or sharing . . . but always to enjoy. A small child discovers their magic for the very first time in this exuberant ode to book appreciation. Brightly colored illustrations are a perfect match for the spare, rhyming text, and thick pages with rounded corners make this a special first “real” book for baby.

Each of the bright pages of this book shows how your child might grow to love books if he is introduced to them as an infant and read to every day of his childhood. The child in the book carries books with him, shows them to his friends, and, most importantly, brings them to his mother for reading aloud. He will be ready to learn when he begins school and has already helped his younger sibling by sharing his books with her.
This is a book for both you and your child. You might look through it and imagine a time when your infant will be a toddler dragging books around the house with him. How will you get to that point where he loves books so much? By reading to him as an infant and throughout all his developing months. While he may not know what you are saying now or what is shown in the pictures, you are introducing him to the rich words, sounds, colors, images, and experiences that come from books. Each small exposure to a book helps his brain grow healthy and strong.
