Age Group 2 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Babbling and beginning to imitate sounds
  • Smiling at the sound of familiar voices

You already know that your baby loves you! Your voice makes your baby turn their head toward you and other family members. They may even kick their legs and smile when you talk. Continuing to talk with your dear one will help them build their understanding of the sounds of our language as well as how the words go together. Simple books with one word to a page or song books can help you to have exciting things to talk about. Hold the books near your baby’s face so they can see the pictures as you point to them.

Why did we select this book?

Your baby's eyes are not fully developed yet. They see images with high-contrast best. For example, the solid blue cat on a white background is something their eyes can see. If that cat were in a field of flowers or on a chair in a house, your baby might not be as interested in the page. This book of animals was selected not only for the contrast, but for the opportunity it creates for you to have a conversation with your little one.

Related Activities

Hold your baby’s attention by holding the book in front of them, or above them if they are on their back. Talk with them about the animals on the pages. Along with reading the words on the left hand page, you can also talk about the bunny’s long ears and fluffy tail. Remember that the sound your infant loves the most is the sound of your voice. The sense of comfort they get from your voice will open their brain to receiving all the images and sounds that come from your reading, helping their brain grow strong.
