One hundred bright photographs of words a baby might learn in her first two years are laid out on bright, bold backgrounds.

Age Group 9 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to ‘choose’ a bedtime book by reaching for it
  • Beginning to look towards items you point to
  • Enjoying hiding for peekaboo
  • Imitating sounds

Your baby is likely developing some favorite books. They may even present you with what they want you to read when you hold up a couple of choices of books. Their attention span is getting longer so they may be able to enjoy a book with a couple of sentences to the page. They may also start pointing to things when you ask a question such as, ”Where’s the bunny?” Peekaboo is a favorite game as your dear one is just now starting to learn about how permanent things are. Will you still be behind your hands when you say Peekaboo? Oh good! It’s you!

Why did we select this book?

A child is constantly learning words even before they are able to speak. Showing them a book with bold pictures of objects and then reading the object's name helps your child learn new words. The bright format of this book with the clear photographs and durable pages was an easy choice for Raising Readers.

This book has a special binding that allows it to lie flat and stay open on its own. Books are always best when loving adults use them to interact with children, but this one gives you the option to leave it with your child. Leave it open on the floor beside them, occasionally turning the pages. The bright pictures may draw your child’s attention even when you are too busy to read the book aloud.
