Family Literacy Day--January 27th, 2017: Home

Books for Infants

  • What infants like in Books:
  • Very young children are attracted by brightly colored pictures of simple objects.
  • They are listeners, and respond well to books with simple texts and good rhythms.
  • Wordless books stimulate them both visually and mentally, and encourage them to create their own stories.
  • They are delighted with board books and cloth books, which have the virtue of being practically indestructible.
