The earlier we read to babies, the better. Starting young will help them achieve a love of reading later in life. It’s important
to find books that babies will have an interest in and will make them want more. Where is Baby’s Belly Button will do just that. This latest edition is an interactive “flip the flap” book that encourages babies to look for various body parts that they can find under the flaps. It’s a fun way to get a young child involved in a story. The round-faced, multi-cultural babies in the illustrations are compelling and heart-warming. They’ll get your child giggling and asking for more. Allowing your child to be part of the action with interactive books makes them feel as though they are helping to tell the story. Eventually, they’ll be “reading” it back to you.

The books that they start with will become the classics in your home. One day, before you know it, they’ll be reading the stories to their younger siblings.
