Reading the book with baby offers parents an excellent opportunity to enjoy some quality bonding time while enhancing babies’ language abilities and enriching their vocabulary. The Where Do I Travel Soft Book encourages tummy time, an essential part of babies’ natural development, and includes 5 fun activities and a variety of playful textures that will inspire babies to explore, boosting creativity, imagination, motor skills, and other Developmental Wonders.
0-3+ months: THE SENSES - VISUAL STIMULATION The black & white side offers baby essential visual stimulation from day one. Place the book at a convenient distance from baby (8-12 inches) and let them try and focus their gaze on the contrasting shapes and the mirror.
3+ months: FINE MOTOR SKILLS - FINGER & HAND MUSCLES Baby's sight is already developed enough to enjoy the book's colorful side and explore the various activities (satin ribbons, crinkly tail and more) while practicing fine motor skills.
0-6+ months: GROSS MOTOR SKILLS - TUMMY TIME Both sides will engage and stimulate baby at earlier and later stages of development, helping extend tummy time. Place baby on the tummy with the book in reach and let them explore the toy with eyes, hands and mouth.
3-6+ months: COGNITION - OBJECT PERMANENCE Playing the peek-a-boo game is a wonderful way of helping baby begin to understand the idea of object permanence, realizing that things still remain where they are even if you can't see them.
