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?
We always like the books in the Maisy series for their solid color backgrounds and bold illustrations surrounded by the black line. The black line separating the picture from the background helps very young eyes to focus on the page and all the storytelling possibilities they hold.
This book is the perfect size to take with you on your trips out of the house. The bright colors will attract your baby’s eye and all the vehicles will allow you to talk about the cars, trucks, bikes, and so on you see on the roads. Don’t feel silly making the noises on the page. The combination of your child seeing the picture on the page, you saying the name of the vehicle and making the sound of the vehicle, and you pointing out those vehicles as you drive or walk helps them learn.
