It's never too early to start reading to your baby. Baby's First Stories presents a unique blend of read-aloud stories and high-contrast visuals to stimulate baby as you read. With four stories featuring an adorable elephant, panda, whale and bunny.
This second book in the series focuses on faces and naming body parts, and encourages babies and carers to join in with their own games of peek-a-boo, or tickle-time. Featuring black-and-white artwork with bold pops of blue. Neither too long, nor too short, these stories easily fit into baby's daily routine, to make reading together a regular activity all the family can enjoy.
When your little one is ready to move on, try the next book in the series: Baby's First Stories - 6-9 months. Each story collection has been created in consultation with early years experts to perfectly suit your baby's needs at every stage in their first year. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning textile designer Jane Foster, and written by picture book rising-star, Lily Murray.
Baby’s First Stories 3-6 months is a follow on from the first one – Baby’s First Stories 0-3 months. The first book is full of simple illustrations in black and white. This book introduces the colour blue to the baby. The illustrations are very similar to the first book with very simple but interesting patterns and pictures. The book returns to the same characters - whale, panda, bunny and elephant. Each character goes on a little adventure which is written in verse.
I can see how this book is a progression from the first one. It begins to introduce actions and fun sounds which you could share with your child such as tickling, peekaboo, wiggle, hop and stomp, and funny noises such as 'buzz!' This book is perfect for babies of this age and will definitely become a firm favourite among bedtime stories and cuddle time!
