Give your baby the best start in life with a personalised book for newborns that is specifically designed to stimulate babies’ vision and hearing.
As a parent you want to give your baby the best start in life. So you’ll no doubt be interested to learn that scientists have shown that the single most important thing a parent can do to help their child acquire language, prepare their child for school, and instill a love of learning in their child, is to read to them.
Reading to babies, including newborns, helps build early literacy skills and positive family relationships. In fact, research has shown that reading to newborns can promote a love of books and learning as well as increase a child’s vocabulary and IQ.
You may have noticed, however, that few newborns will focus on the bright colours in most children’s books. This is because, as researchers have also shown, newborns prefer to look at high‑contrast pictures, particularly black and white shapes. Such images send the strongest optical signals to a baby’s brain, which maximises brain development.
That’s where this book is different. The bold black and white pictures are designed to capture the attention of even the youngest children while the rhythm and repetition of the story build their literacy skills. Older babies will also be delighted when they realise the person who’s lost their teddy shares their name.
This is truly a book your child will enjoy from birth and one you will treasure for years to come as a keepsake. It also makes a great gift for new parents and their newborns.
