'These four unique books are geared toward babyís first 12 months and will bring them through the development stages of security, discovery, play and dialogue. Ideal first books for infants, they feature pictures without words so that your baby can point to pictures and develop language recognition. This activity will help new parents to communicate and have fun dialogue with their baby. The stories capture times that are delightful and will help busy parents to find quality time to enjoy gentle stimulation with their baby. These board books are safe and sized just right for tiny fingers. The books were developed in 1998 by a group of educators in Stratford, Connecticut who wanted to find a way to reduce the number of children entering school unprepared to learn. The books are now available direct from Developing Hearts, the non-profit educational publisher. All proceeds help supply books to families in need through Healthy Families America and the Public Library Association. Itís recognized that children need reading readiness and pre-reading skills.
