- Looking at faces
Your little one is just getting used to the world around them. That includes getting to know YOU in a new way! Up until now, your baby has only heard your voice. Your voice is the most important thing in their world right now. Singing and talking to them as you soothe them reinforces that connection. Reading simple books, even though they don’t understand them, gives you another way of sharing your connection. As their vision develops, they will be increasingly drawn to faces. When you talk with them, putting your face within 12 inches of theirs will help them connect your face to the sound that they already love!
Why did we select this book?
We chose this book because you can take it anywhere your baby goes. This book can go in a purse, a diaper bag, or in a toy box ready to be pulled out and explored with a child. We also chose the book for the diversity of faces and emotions on the pages. Babies and toddlers love to look at the faces around them, from the reassuring faces of their caregivers to the new faces of other children passing by.
Baby face books can help your child start to learn emotions and actions. Each page allows you to point out what each baby is doing and to talk about when your child also does things like smiling or sleeping. Most of the children in the book are older than newborns and will be doing things your infant cannot, but it is never too soon to talk with your baby about the things that they and other babies do. By talking and holding a book in front of your infant, you start a habit of spending time together reading–an activity that is very important to developing healthy brains!
