Bonding with baby!
Kids are never too young to read. In fact, research shows that reading to children of all ages — even infants — helps boost speech and vocabulary (as well as overall brain development). Even better, it provides a chance for parents to just hang out and bond with their babies without the tasks of feeding and diapering taking center stage.
Discover a range of human emotions with this chunky board book filled with happy, sad, silly, surprised and even angry babies. In the back, there’s a mirror for Baby to try imitating different facial expressions.
Ages 0–3 • $7.95
