It’s true! See, it is known to all that 80% of brain growth occurs in the first 1000 days of life, and babies almost triple their birth weight in the first year itself. So when you read to your baby during their early days their BRAIN DEVELOPS FASTER.
As a result, they PICK WORDS FASTER and use them aptly earlier than other babies. Eventually, early reading also leads them to become INDEPENDENT READERS faster.
A win-win for both the parent and the child.
So, with this thought, introducing…
Baby BOOK RECOMMENDATION OF THE WEEK!

ABOUT THE BOOK
A fruity sweet jiggy book that can make any toddler groove to its rhyming beats.

Shake it like a mango,
party like a pear,
wiggle like an apple,
just dance like you don't care!

Word of Advice/ Parenting Tip for when inculcating a reading habit in your little one
- It takes many months for babies to understand that books are not meant for chewing and tearing pages. Since it is recommended to begin reading to your child as soon as one can possibly start, expectations of any sort with respect to them even looking at a book should not be formed also.
Trust your child. Your baby will start enjoying being around books with time!
- Hence it is recommended to attempt book reading to your baby in the format of board books for starters. They are easy for babies to hold, chew, and play around with.
Plus you won’t have to worry about them destroying the book before its first birthday!
- Once the board books have been aced, then parents may switch to other formats of books like flap books, paperback, hardcovers, and so on.
- A baby’s attention span increases gradually so don’t attempt to read a book completely in the first go. In the first few days, your baby would either look away or snatch the book from your hand to play with it.
That’s completely normal!
- Always be patient with your baby. Give them time and encourage them with books they show a slight interest in.
The key lies in identifying what your baby likes, not to impose your likes on them!
