Why We Love It
Newborns are drawn to bold, clearly defined graphics that their developing eyes can readily see when held 8-10 inches from their eyes. The high contrast, positive/negative images in these double page spreads are perfect for your newborn. Simple images are matched with simple words about what is happening on the page as in “fish swim” and “flowers bloom”. There is just the right amount of text so hold your baby close and share this excellent first board book. The book closes with the dreamy, loving..”and stars shine all for you.”
- For new parents, this may be the first time reading to their child. Either cradle your baby or prop him against your front so the book is 8-10 inches from his eyes.
- Notice how your newborn gazes at faces and is drawn to the pictures. Newborns crave the sound of a loving voice, so tell your baby what you are seeing in addition to the printed words on each page. Every read is another chance to bond and begin a lifetime love of reading.
