Books are my “stand-by” when it comes to entertaining my daughter on the road or at home. I love pulling out a book and watching my daughter soak in the pictures and delight in the text. I especially am fond of books that are “interactive” in some way.
If you have a baby in the birth to 18 months age range, I bet he’ll love Where is Baby’s Belly Button? Written and illustrated by Karen Katz, the board book has cute and colorful pictures of babies with accompanying questions and “peek-a-boo” lift-the-flap pages. For example, the book will pose the question, “Where are baby’s eyes?” Lift a flap and reveal a happy baby’s eyes “under the hat.”
Asking questions is such a great teaching tool and the simplicity of this book makes it perfect for infants and older babies. Best of all, it’s a board book so babies can chew away to their heart’s content.
If your baby giggles and smiles and claps whenever you play peek-a-boo, this book will become a “favorite” very quickly. For $5.99, this book would be fantastic to add to your bookshelf or to give to a friend or coworker who recently had a baby.
