Happy Baby Playtime
This book is great for babies because there’s lots for them to look at. You can talk about the different things in the picture, just like the Granny in this film. When they’re reading about the drum, notice how Granny is gently tapping on the baby’s tummy, which will help the baby learn what the word ‘drum’ means, but also what a drum can feel and sound like.
You can read a page or two at a time, and you don’t have to read the book in this order. Books like this are great because they often feature images of toys and objects that babies can relate to. If your baby has a ball, or any of the other toys in the book, then talk to them about it. If they don’t have the things that are pictured, it’s a perfect way to expose babies to new words and to help them learn more about their world.
