Awareness of Print and Illustrations

Looking at Pictures

Your baby is becoming more interested in the books you've been reading him, developing an Awareness of Print and Illustrations. At this age, she'll be starting to look more carefully at the pictures, instead of just listening to your voice. Show her books with brightly-colored or high contrast pictures with simple shapes, as she'll be more drawn to these than books with soft pastel colors. She'll also find books with textured pages very interesting, as they add another layer to the experience with sensory stimulation.
