Choose black and white for sight to kickstart your baby’s eye development

We all want to give our babies the best start in life and supporting eye development is probably one of the top things parents want to contribute to. So, how do you kickstart your baby’s eye development? The answer is fairly simple: choose black and white for sight – show your little one lots of black and white pictures and show them to him or her often.

The Mapmaker Chronicles: Race to the End of the World by A. L. Tait

4 out of 5 stars


A contest, unknown lands and a reluctant traveller make ‘Race to the End of the World’ an engaging adventure story for children aged 9 and over. And while I thought the premise was a little weak, I loved that A. L. Tait has used sophisticated language that will challenge young readers.

Give the baby in your life the best start

Want to give the baby in your life the best start? One of the best things you can do as a parent is to read to your child from birth.

Most children’s books contain lots of brightly coloured pictures though. This is great for older children but for the best brain development, research shows that babies up to 6 months of age need high contrast, black and white images.

The personalised Where’s My Teddy?, K. M. Wade’s first book for newborns, is specifically designed to stimulate babies’ vision and hearing. The bold black and white pictures will capture the attention of even the youngest children while the rhythm and repetition of the story build their literacy skills. Each book is customised to your child so older children will also be thrilled when they discover that the person who has lost their teddy shares the same name as them.

This is truly a book your child will enjoy from birth.
