Baby Touch books by Ladybird

{
}

The Ladybird range provides something for every aspect of a baby's development, all supported by the latest research into how they respond to pictures, things to touch and the voices they hear.

High Contrast

High contrast images help a baby's sight develop, while soft, padded cloth books encourage younger babies to use their hands and fingers to explore.

Textures

Books with textures to touch and feel stimulate the senses. Unusual shapes, holes to peep through and mirrors, reward a baby's insatiable curiosity about the world around them.

Cuddle-time

Cosy, calm times cuddled up with books are special experiences for both baby and parent.

Communication and Closeness

Reading the words and rhymes will help you to feel confident in how you communicate with your baby.

Sounds, songs, stories and rhymes promote language and listening skills, as well as giving you that feeling of closeness to your baby.

Award-winning

The award-winning Baby Touch range provides perfect first books for baby, whether it's tummy time or bed time.

 

Five top tips for reading with your baby

Time together

To a young baby, 'reading' means a special cuddle on your lap, exploring a soft book. Hold baby snugly in the crook of one arm, facing outwards. Use the same arm to hold the book, keeping one hand free to turn the pages.

Interaction

Start reading with a contented three month old baby, in a quiet place. Let your baby wave the book about, even taste it! To babies, books are like toys and reading is play. Respond to your baby's babbling in an exaggerated way - babies can hear individual sounds and copy them if they are distinct.

Sound, Movement and Touch

Once your baby sits up, choose light, sturdy board books with rounded corners, bright pictures and textures to feel. From six months, babies love lift-the-flap books. From nine months, introduce noisy sound books. Be guided by what makes reading fun for you both.

A Picture Tells a Story

Use the pictures as well as the words. Babies learn by doing: as baby reaches for the pictures, say the words to help build vocabulary. Try asking questions about the pictures and answering them, with a fun, lively voice.

Read and Play

If older babies get wriggly, try physical play. Be relaxed about what books mean to a baby - a five minute bouncy sing-song game with an open book is still reading!
