Stimulate a baby’s developing vision with these bright and bold, high-contrast novelty board books.

 

Babies are able to react and respond to simple patterns and contrasting colours just a few weeks after being born. As their eyes develop, they begin track objects and scan for things to look at.

On the Move aids this development by using high-contrast colours and patterns, striking illustrations and pages that pull out in different directions. Babies will react with delight as they track and scan the pictures and patterns that are revealed as you pull the tabs, while the simple text prompts parent interaction.

The perfect first book to share with your baby!

Stimulate a baby’s developing vision with these bright and bold, high-contrast novelty board books.

 

Babies are able to react and respond to simple patterns and contrasting colours just a few weeks after being born. As their eyes develop, high-contrast shapes, patterns and reflective surfaces give newborns something simple to focus on, respond to and interact with.

 

Funny Faces aids this development by using high-contrast colours, patterns with striking illustrations and a mirror to peer in to. Babies will react with delight as they look at the funny animals, play peek-a-boo, and giggle as they see themselves in the mirror. The simple text prompts parent interaction.

 

The perfect first book to share with your baby!

 

My View:

Simply delightful!

 

I “road” tested these two books with my grandson who is now almost one year old. He was immediately attracted to the bright bold colours and the simple storylines, the “pull out” cards and the mirror (at the back of Funny Faces). As the “reader” there are plenty of opportunities for me to create my own narrative based on the simple images, and I am sure as my grandson develops his language skills he will be able to add to and develop his own  the “stories” as we sit and read together.

On a practical level I loved that this is a sturdily made book which is small enough to be held by little hands 🙂

  1. What a great find, Carol! Board books are fantastic for little ones, aren’t they? And with those ‘extras,’ I’m sure those books draw your grandson right in. The earlier they get started loving books, the better, if you ask me.

    • I agree with you Margot – the sooner kids starts “reading” the better and grandson loves these two. It is Bodhi’s birthday coming up and I am searching for a new release “Under the Love Umbrella” which has sold out in most shops in Australia…to give to him. It is a very special book.
