What’s Happening at this Age
- Recognizing familiar voices
- Gazing at high contrast pictures
- Looking at faces
Your little one is just getting used to the world around them. That includes getting to know YOU in a new way! Up until now, your baby has only heard your voice. Your voice is the most important thing in their world right now. Singing and talking to them as you soothe them reinforces that connection. Reading simple books, even though they don’t understand them, gives you another way of sharing your connection. As their vision develops, they will be increasingly drawn to faces. When you talk with them, putting your face within 12 inches of theirs will help them connect your face to the sound that they already love!
Why did we select this book?
Rosemary Wells is not only a wonderful author and illustrator, but also an advocate for families reading together. The boxed set includes a folded poster and parent's guide with messages about reading. The poster is, in fact, the pages from the book Read to Your Bunny, a favorite of Raising Readers. This was an easy set to chose for the collection with all the best books and all the best messages for parents and babies. This boxed set of board books is durable, too, which makes it perfectly designed for everyday reading.
These nursery rhymes are also songs. If you know the tune you can sing the book as well as read it. Your singing voice can be very soothing to your baby. You might also lightly tap your finger on your baby’s hand, arm, or chest in time with the music. They will then be able to feel and hear the song.
