Even though your baby does not understand your words at this age, she loves the sound of your voice. Every time your baby hears your voice and hears new words, her brain is growing. So in addition to reading the words on the pages, talk to your baby about things on the page. As your baby grows, you can introduce her to a variety of farm animals, by exploring animal names and noises.
Age Group 2 months
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?
You will notice that each of the animal illustrations in this sweet book are surrounded by a black line. The black line separating the picture from the solid color background helps very young eyes to focus on the picture.
How do you read a book with just a single word on each page? The reading would be over quickly if you just read the name of the animal. Instead, consider using this book to talk and interact with your child. For example, with the snail on the first page, you can talk about how slowly a snail moves while running your finger slowly up your baby’s arm. “Meow” on the cat page. Your baby does not understand what you are doing or saying, but they are making connections between sounds, images, and the feeling of your loving touch that will help them with her language in the coming months and years.
