What’s Happening at this Age
- Recognizing familiar voices
- Gazing at high contrast pictures
- 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 often select word books like the ones in this set because they offer an introduction to the things your child will discover in everyday life, in conversations, and in other books as they grow. This set's clear, diverse photographs and bold solid-color backgrounds may hold your child's interest throughout her first year, and the sturdy pages might just hold up that long, too.
The sturdiness of these books means you can bring them with you wherever you go and leave them out for your baby anywhere. Pull them out anytime you have opportunities for lap time with your baby. The goal is not to teach your child all the words or objects on the pages. The book simply gives you an opportunity to talk about what you see on the page. For example, you might point to the dump truck and talk about the truck you saw working on the road. Or, you might point to the picture of the kitten and tell your child what sound a kitten makes or how soft it looks. Each time you talk to your child, you’re building brain connections. How great is that?
