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. We chose this book because it shows many baby faces. We especially love that the babies' faces in this book are almost life-sized.
Your baby may reach for the pictures in the book. Let them touch the pages no matter how dirty their fingers may be. Touching the pages is one of your baby’s ways of interacting with the book. Any interaction will help babies feel a connection with the book. Connections with books and the reading of books are very healthy for a baby’s growing brain.
