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?

From 4 months on, babies love to look at the faces of other babies. We chose this book because it shows many baby's faces and their many emotions. We also like the rhythm and rhyme describing babies and their routines.
