'We've been sharing this book with our son from about 2 weeks...'

We've been sharing this book with our son from about 2 weeks old. Every day the pages hold his attention for longer and he loves the page with all the hearts, squares and circles combined. Having crinkly pages is also fab.

What families say

We got this book when my little boy was born- the bold patterns were great as his sight developed and he could play with it too.

We love the contrast and trying to copy the expressions on the faces! Simple but effective at capturing my sons attention.

I introduced book to my baby since she is two week old. This book was the best to attract her well. I was amazed to see that she enjoys watching every page of the book with eyes wide opened.

This was the first book we brought our son. Lovely high contrast book with a loop so can be cached on to pushchair etc. We use it now to reinforce words, mummy, daddy and baby.

I read this book with my baby when she was four weeks old and she loved looking at the patterns - she stared at them for ages! I would highly recommend this book as a baby's first book.

We first read this book with my Daughter when she was only a few days old! She would stare at the pages and then as she got older would start smiling with recognition at the faces. She's now 11 month old and still loves this book! She loves lots of books and I think starting with this really helped.
