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 chose this book because it uses pictures that your baby can see. Research shows that showing babies high-contrast colors, images, patterns, and shapes is key to helping them grow not only a strong pair of eyes but also a healthy brain. Black and white are the easiest colors for babies to see. As their vision begins to strengthen, they also respond to other colors such as red, blue, and yellow. These visual extremes captivate babies' attention, help them to pick out the differences between shapes, and pave the way for healthy brain development.
