Why did we select this book?
It will be many months and years before your child fully grasps the concepts of color, shapes, colors, and opposites, and these books were not chosen to necessarily teach your child those concepts.
With your infant in one arm and a book in another, it's the perfect opportunity to talk with your child about the things you see on the page. For example, counting from 1 to 10 will start to introduce the sounds that will someday stand for numbers, but it is the sound of your voice and how you might talk about the birds on the page that will help your child develop a strong, healthy brain. Try using books to talk with your baby about their world.
