Baby Animals Black & White Baby Board BookStudies show it's never too early to start reading to infants. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics notes that reading out loud to your kids starting from birth strengthens your parent-child bond and gets your baby started on important language and literacy skills. Add these books to your child's home library, and get ready for snuggly storytime. Yusuke Yonezu's clever lift-the-flap illustrations offer surprises on every page — what looks like a lollipop turns into a chameleon, or a hard-candy wrapper transforms into the tail of a fish. Newborns only see black, white, and gray at first, which makes these high-contrast, black-and-white illustrations all the more engaging to young eyes. When Leo goes to the library for "baby time," he gets to do exciting activities, like singing a happy song or playing peek-a-boo with scarves — things you can play at home, too!

Amazing black and white book for baby
Reading to baby doesn't come naturally for every parent, especially when your little one is too young to truly interact during reading time. But with every page turned, you're stimulating cognitive development and helping to establish a love of reading that will last long past the toddler years. If you are looking for a few perfect books to add to your child's collection, we have the scoop on the best types of books to promote cognitive development and a lifelong passion for reading. Research indicates that high-contrast colors like black and white register most strongly in a baby's brain and help the optic nerve to grow. Odds are, your little one won't start turning the pages or even paying much attention to them until he's a few months old.
When your baby is born their retinas are not fully developed and your baby sees the world very differently to an adult. Although they have been able to distinguish between light and dark in the womb, your new born can still only detect very large contrasts between light and dark after birth such as black and white. This means that pretty much all of the wider world around them is blurry and they cannot distinguish between shapes or colours. The print is 42 x 29cm and is designed to fit an A3 mount. What wonderful books.
