Best Books for newborn to 3-month-old

The best Books for newborns are the ones with more contrast (books with black, white and red pictures). As your baby gets older,s/he will be interested in other bright colors as well. For 3-month-old babies, it’s also important that they can touch the book that has different texture within it. So, the best books for 3-month-old should contain brighcolors and different textures. You can sit beside your little one or let her sit on your lap and then read the book. It’s not important what you read it’s just your voice soothing the baby and she enjoys looking at brighcolors. Don’t worry if the book doesn’t have many words that you can read, you can make your own story.  Even a newborn can learn to appreciate reading and story-telling. His/ Her eyes will move along as you turn the pages while reading aloud, which serves as a stimulus for arousing interests in books.

How “Books” help babies developing their skills:

  • high contrasts & brighColors:             Develops visual system and focusing
  • Hearing:                                                        Develops further the hearing
  • touching:                                                       Texture on different pages
  • Cause and effect:                                         The texture on book make noises

Customer Reviews:

“I am a total advocate for introducing black and white books at infancy, not to mention colored books as well. This is a great way to introduce your little one to books. My 13-month-old still enjoys looking at this black and white book. ”

“It may be too soon to tell, but my one week old certainly seems mesmerized by the images in this book. And I enjoy feeling that she’s being stimulated by something other than nursing, pooping, and sleeping.”

“it’s something that’s a little bit helpful when I want him to pick up his head while on his tummy because I put the book in front of him and sometimes he tries to look at it.”

Customer Reviews:

“I bought this book for my nice since she has a black and white tiger stuffed animal that she loves. The other pages have black and white animals with cute color glitter details. She loves looking at the pages and pointing out the different animals. ”

“This book is great for anyone that has a child under 6 months. My baby loved it and even though it has simple text the repetition and the bright pictures have what captured his attention. This book was thoroughly loved.”

“This was the first book that really captured my baby’s attention, and she still enjoys it at 16 months. The bold black and white images are easy for little ones to see, and each page has some shiny colored foil illustrating a different part of the image. This adds a lot of visual interest and also makes it easy to talk about colors.”

“This crinkly cloth book is easy for babies to hold and great for teething. It also keeps little hands busy during car rides. Although the manufacturer recommends surface cleaning only, I’ve successfully washed mine inside a mesh lingerie bag on the gentle cycle. And it still looks new. ”

“My daughter since she was 3 months old has loved this book. She’s 5 months now. Once she started grabbing things she reached out for it all the time. It says to surface wipe only, but I threw it in the wash since my daughter likes to chew on it, but it stayed intact. The poetry on there is so melodic and fun to read. I change my voice and make sure to be extra rhythmic when reading it to make it stick. Her favorite is the dragonfly wings. I would say one version of this type of book is enough. There are so many other types of books out there I wanted to give my daughter variety without buying every single type of book.”

“My 4 1/2-month-old granddaughter LOVES these books! She loves the colors and the crinkly sounds they make. They entertain her for fairly long stretches of time. These books are made very well and although the directions say to hand wash, I washed them in the washing machine on the cold gentle cycle with baby detergent and line dried them and they turned out fine. They continue to crinkle on!”
