There’s nothing much sweeter than the bonding that takes place during story time. From the earliest days of life, even before she can understand plotlines and complex sentences, your baby loves to hear your voice. Reading to your infant promotes many developmental benefits, including social and emotional skills.
For newborn babies, choose a high contrast book with black, white and bright colors that are easier for your young baby’s eyes to see. As he grows, choose a soft book with sensory surprises like peek-a-boo flaps or crinkle pages. You can bring the story to life with a baby puppet book – so start working on those acting skills and character voices! Surround your baby with a whole library of developmental books to support a love of reading that will last a lifetime.
