Do you love reading books? Are you eager to introduce the love for reading to your baby? Now, parents often ponder when to introduce books to babies. There is no particular time limit for introduction to this magical world. In fact, you can start when your baby reaches the one-year milestone.
What if my baby simply chews books and throws them away? Most parents have this question in mind. And it’s not wrong, and it does happen. The solution is to keep introducing hardbound books your babies can chew. However, the books must also have vivid and vibrant pictures. You can opt for English story books that have few words and more big images. That will definitely grab your baby’s attention.
Is introducing books at an early age a good idea?
Reading books offer multiple benefits to your children. Reading out stories to your baby aids in boosting their emotional and social skills. It also helps them develop intellectual growth, along with the urge to explore the world. With books, you can spark their imagination and help in the promotion of creative skills.
At the Brainy Bear Store, we have a vast collection of story books curated as per the age of babies. The Brainy Bear Story books are carefully selected to help your baby attain emotional, social and intellectual growth.
