This Little Baby
Babies love to look at pictures of other babies. You can see the baby really focussing on the pictures in this book. She coos and gurgles along, and wiggles her arms and legs – all signs that she’s enjoying the book. The final page has a mirror – notice how mum pauses and gives her lots of time to look in the mirror and explore what she can see.
Short, simple books are great for babies. You can always read them again, or go back through the book and talk more about the pictures. After reading this story, you could also make up your own version and extend the book in any way you want. Don’t worry about trying to make it rhyme, but point to your baby and finish the phrase ‘this little baby….’ Your little baby will be sure to love that best!
