Baby Look is an accordion-style book that can be unfolded to entertain your baby during tummy time. Babies love to look at baby faces, and this book is dual-sided, featuring beautiful photos of babies on each side. Younger babies will love the close-up baby faces on one side, while older babies will enjoy the words and actions on the back of the book.

What’s Happening at this Age
- Beginning to swipe at books
- ‘Helping’ turn pages by batting at the book
- Laughing and making more sounds including back and forth ‘conversations’
Your baby is much more aware of the world around them now. They can turn their head toward sounds and smile or frown in response to things they hear. They’re also working to have control of their arms and hands. They may reach toward a book as you read it and try to grab it themselves. Making sure books are always within reach can help them with this. Continue to read to them and start to gently guide their hand to pat the pictures as you talk about what’s on the pages. Making reading time interactive will be thrilling for them!

Why did we select this book?
Babies love to look at other babies' faces! We try to always include a book featuring close-ups of baby's faces in the collection. As your baby's vision expands, so will their interest in other faces, especially those of other infants and toddlers. Books with babies faces allow them to explore the diversity of faces. With a book like this one, your baby can also start to make the link between the emotion on the face and the activity or emotion you are reading on the page.
You can turn the pages of this book both forwards and backwards. This book will also stand up on its own on the floor, on a changing table, or any surface. If your doctor recommends tummy time, lay this book flat on the floor in front of your baby and talk about the other babies on the pages. Have fun talking with your baby about what they share with the other babies like a yellow shirt, curly hair, a caregiver that likes to kiss them, and so on. You can also point to a babies features (nose, ears, eyes, chin) in the book and then gently touch your baby’s same facial features. The picture on the page combined with your touch and talk will help your little one start making the connection between the pictured nose, the word “nose”, and their own sweet nose. Connections help your baby’s brain learn and grow!
