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, so they see high-contrast things best. The best contrast is a simple black object on a white background or vice versa. We selected this book because it may attract your baby's attention in a way that books with more complicated illustrations will not.

Hold your baby’s attention by holding this 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. The sound your infant loves the most is the sound of your voice, and the sense of comfort they get from your voice will help their brain grow strong.
