Your baby’s eyesight is still developing. Brightly coloured books will help the pictures stand out so baby can enjoy them more!
Choose a book with bright colourful pictures and simple words.
DO IT TOGETHER
Share the book with your baby by reading the words or talking about the pictures. Make sure your baby can see your face and the book you are sharing. Notice what your baby is looking at in the book and name it.
Books with bright colours are good for your baby in their first few months as their eyes are still developing and they can’t see clearly. The colourful images are easier to see and help make the pictures stand out.
