Baby, Boo! from Amazing Baby
This book came to us in a Read to Me! bag along with a couple other books, a CD of lullabies, and information on the NS library system…oh and a little baby hat. The Read to Me! program is a brilliant Nova Scotia venture that has one of these bags delivered to mothers and babies within 24 hours of birth. The goal is to increase literacy rates.
Baby, Boo! – one of Amazing Baby’s best sellers – features black and white baby pictures on one page and a colourful picture (hearts, dots, squares) on the opposite page with a short sentence that matches the picture. The final page has a mirror on it so that your baby can look at him- or herself. It may not seem like much to a parent, but it’s great for your child’s development.
Originally, it was a favourite of Liam’s simply for the mirror. He later started to enjoy looking at the baby pictures and having the captions read to him. Now, he tries to read it to Callan. The best part about that is that on the second page, he reads, “Kiss, kiss, kiss,” and leans over to kiss Callan. Of course, then Callan tries to eat it so not only is it a great book to read to your children, but it’s tasty too!
This is another one of those books that I probably wouldn’t have picked up on my own but now that I’ve got it, I’m glad someone gave it to me.
