Photographs emphasize the faces of babies wearing or holding a rainbow of their favorite things, from purple sunglasses to a bright orange flower.

Age Group 4 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to swipe at books
  • ‘Helping’ turn pages by batting at the book
  • Laughing and making more sounds including back and forth ‘conversations’

Your baby is much more aware of the world around them now. They can turn their head toward sounds and smile or frown in response to things they hear. They’re also working to have control of their arms and hands. They may reach toward a book as you read it and try to grab it themselves. Making sure books are always within reach can help them with this. Continue to read to them and start to gently guide their hand to pat the pictures as you talk about what’s on the pages. Making reading time interactive will be thrilling for them!

Why did we select this book?

Babies love to look at other babies' faces, especially at this age, and we have always included a baby face book in the collection for this reason.

In addition to great baby faces, this book is a wonderful introduction to color. Not only is the page a solid color, but the baby pictured is wearing something of that same color. As you are reading, you can point out these colors to your child. You might also point to the different colors that your own child is wearing. Of course, your child will not know his colors yet, but you saying them out loud and pointing to them helps their growing mind start to make connections.
