We often select "words books" like the ones in this set because they offer an introduction to the things your child will discover in everyday life, in conversations, and in other books as she grows. This set's clear, diverse photographs and bold solid-color backgrounds may hold your child's interest throughout her first year, and the sturdy pages might just hold up that long, too.
The sturdiness of these books means you can bring them with you wherever you go and leave them out for your baby anywhere. Pull them out anytime you have opportunities for lap time with your baby. The goal is not to teach your child all the words or objects on the pages. The book simply gives you an excuse to talk about what is on the page. For example, you might point to the dump truck and talk about the truck you saw working on the road. You might point to the picture of the kitten and tell your child what sound a kitten makes or how soft it looks. Does your baby understand all the things you are saying? No. But she is hearing the best sound in the world to her--your voice. As you explore these pages, she is being exposed to many new words--a very good activity for a young, growing brain. There is no need to put these books away after a certain age. Your child may explore the images as long as these sturdy little books last.
