Hi! Bye! by


Hi! Bye! by

Six to twelve months: At this age, babies are responding to words and actions. They're actively listening and the more they hear, the sooner they will be able to form their own words. Participatory games are important at this level. Lift-the-flap books (effectively, the game of peek-a-boo in a book) help children recognize objects and develop object permanence. The books are chunky, with easy-to-turn foam-filled pages. Age-appropriate toys are included, like a teether or a button to push that responds with 'woof' or 'meow'. Hi! Bye! Listening, looking, anticipating, responding: that's what little ones will do when mum and dad read this chunky, animal-shaped board book to them. Each new animal, first shown facing front, greets the child; turn the page, and baby's new friend, now seen from the back, says 'Bye!' It won't be long before baby answers!
