Your baby is taking in so much right now.  He is smelling, hearing, tasting, touching, and seeing.  He is not, though, seeing all the complex details of the world that you do.  A book like Touch and Feel: First Words offers images that a baby can see.  You will notice that the shapes of objects are very simple.  Too much detail, and your baby’s eyes and attention will stray quickly away from the page.  Notice that the book has high contrast, or a strong difference between the color of the object and the color of the background.  The bold yellow duck, for example, on a red background creates an image that may draw your baby’s attention.  Try holding the book above your child while he is on his back.  Talk to him about what you see on the pages.  A baby’s attention to striking images plus the comfort of your voice creates a strong environment for healthy brain growth.  Soon your baby will start exploring things with his fingers.  This book also offers touchable textures that will capture his attention.
