Good morning Sun, says Baby. Good morning, baby, says Sun. Babies love looking at pictures of babies, and here are high-contrast photographs of babies in every mood: sad, happy, tired, ticklish. They will enjoy the simple, repetitive words, and will soon learn to respond to them. Babies will love the built-in sound chip: press the right spot and you will hear an irresistible baby giggle! The book is built to last, on shiny colored board, with safe rounded corners. Babies love books. Right from the start, they love to listen at voices and look at pictures. They are also born with the need to communicate. Research shows that they begin to take an interest in voices and faces as soon as they are born. Reading to babies helps them learn to listen and to recognise and imitate the sounds they hear. They will benefit from books long before they are ready to learn to read. A toddler's brain contains twice as many connections as an adult's, so we have more capacity to learn in infancy than at any other time. Some parents find it easy to talk to babies, but others don't. This book, and the others in the series, will help to prompt parents who are unsure how to start.
