Baby’s First Words

Baby’s First Words by Sassy is one of the first books that 4 month old L has really been able to focus on. The items in this book are made of bright, vibrant colors and designs that are noticeably outlined in black. They *pop*!

There isn’t much to say for how he reacts to me sharing this book with him. He lays there staring and looks at it really hard— soaking it all in. I just know he likes it… so, it’s a winner!img_5288In Baby’s First Words, each spread is home to a different setting filled with things that belong there: animals on a farm, food for a picnic, “things that go”, animals from the forest, and things that one might find in a child’s room– bunny, ball, blocks, etc. The illustrations throughout the book are bound to keep Baby’s attention, and everything has its name printed underneath it English and Spanish!)

Soon enough, your genius, bilingual baby will be paging through books, holding their bottle, trying new foods and demanding more pureed manzanas. 🙂

Peek-a Who?

Do you ever get smacked with small reminders that your little one is growing up much faster than you realized? Maybe your sweet baby suddenly likes to hold the bottle by himself, or maybe your independent toddler says (to your surprise), “Potty? POTTY!?”

Maybe, they’re really good at digging through the “rubble” of scattered board books to find the one that you asked them to find.

With vibrant, contrasting colors, Peek-a Who? will be an easy one for your little one to find over and over again.

This rhyming book has cut-out pages for kiddos to peek through to guess what’s on the next page. Peek-a who? is simple and sweet. In the beginning, your little one sees black and white spots– who could be on the next page? “Peek-a moo!” Kiddos will see a ghost (“Peek-a boo!”), a zoo full of animals, and a “Peek-a choo choo!”train going around its tracks. At last, your baby looks through a cut-out to see a special surprise–their own reflection. “Peek-a you!”

Peek-a Who? is one of Scholastic Parent & Child magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Books for Kids.
