Ameya – my youngest – has already started to enjoy books. At four months and a few days, he loves to sit in my lap or lie on his tummy with a nice cloth book. There are two books that he especially enjoys – fuzzy bee and friends and squishy turtle and friends. His smiles and coos when i am reading to him and reaches out to touch the pictures. The books is made of cloth and is easy to hold. both books have a great variety of textures.. to touch, pull, poke, etc. which he loves. he even lies down by himself and plays with the book. A great starting point!!!
