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 offers images that a baby can see. You may notice that the shapes of objects are very simple. You may also notice that the book has high contrast images (a strong difference between the color of the object and the color of the background). The bold yellow duck, for example, on a red background creates an image that may draw your baby's attention.

Related Activities

Hold your baby’s attention by holding the book in front of them, or above them if they are on their back. Talk with them about the pictures on the pages. Along with reading the words on the page, you can also talk about the sound an animal makes or the colors of the objects on the pages. Remember that the sound your infant loves the most is the sound of your voice. The sense of comfort they get from your voice will help their brain grow strong.
