Infants 0 - 2 years

Board books are ideal for this age. Many are small enough for a child to carry and handle. They with-stand wear and tear and clumsy fingers and enable parents to relax when introducing books to a child.

When should I start reading to my child?

A new baby will love being held and hearing your voice, so start as early as possible. By two months babies are able to distinguish patterns and respond to highly contrasting colours and this is an ideal time to introduce bright, simple picture books.
