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?

Rhyming books help children hear how words sound alike and as the book becomes a favorite through repeated readings, the rhymes will help your child know what words come next. We selected this beautiful board book because "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a lullaby that many of us remember from our own childhoods. Why are lullabies and songs important tools in raising your baby? Babies grow healthy and strong when they feel safe. That sense of safety begins with the sound of your voice, a sound that is even more comforting when it hums and sings. Illustrating this traditional lullaby are the animals of artist Sylvia Long . This book will grow with your child. They will enjoy Long's animals and their bedtime routines as they develop ones of his own in years to come.
