On the Move
Babies will love this bright and bold high-contrast book, perfect for sharing from birth!
High-contrast colours are easy for very little babies to focus on, and along with the fun double tabs to pull, On the Move will engage and entertain babies as their eyesight and senses develop. The friendly animal characters will guide you through the book, and there are lots of extra sounds to make (beep, beep!) and fun things to spot.
On the Move aids the development of babies' eyesight by using high-contrast colours and patterns, striking illustrations and pages that pull out in different directions. Babies will react with delight as they track and scan the pictures and patterns that are revealed as you pull the tabs, while the simple text prompts parent interaction.
Also available: Funny Faces, Moo Peek-a-Boo, Bath Time, Animal Train, Splish, Splash
