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?

We choose 'Colors' because it is a book that stimulates a baby's senses. Bold shapes on solid backgrounds can attract an infant's eye and we found the animals in bright colors on a white background to be potentially eye catching for a baby. Several of the panels have a touch and feel surface. A baby whose fingers are lead to those pages will have their sense of touch stimulated. Also, the book has wonderful language for a board book like soft, bumpy, fluffy, and shimmery. A baby, of course, will not know the meanings of these words, but the sound of them in a your voice will stimulate their small ears.

Reading books to your baby is not about your baby understanding the book, but about you and your baby spending time together with the pictures and the words. Hold this book in front of your baby’s face and see if the bold pictures and colors catch their eye. Lead their fingers to the soft fabric of the duck or the bumpy texture of the frog and tell them what they are feeling. Again, your baby will not understand the word “bumpy,” but you have built a connection between a word and a sensation that will help their brain grow. Have fun exaggerating the words on the page and even making animal noises. The finest sound a baby can hear is the sound of your voice so use this book as a way to help them listen and learn.
