First Baby Days: Funny Faces
Illustrated by Mojca Dolinar0-5 years
Babies will love these bright and bold high-contrast books, perfect for sharing from birth.
High-contrast colours are easy for very little babies to focus on, and along with the fun mirror, Funny Faces 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 and fun things to spot.
Funny Faces aids the development of babies' eyesight by using high-contrast colours, patterns with striking illustrations and a mirror to peer in to. Babies will react with delight as they look at the funny animals, play peek-a-boo, and giggle as they see themselves in the mirror. The simple text prompts parent interaction.
