After three months, your baby will begin to understand her relationship to the world and those around her, reveling in the discovery that she is her own little person and that her actions have a real impact. For many parents, this is when the real fun begins!
As your little one begins smiling, cooing, and reaching out for things, choose books that have tactile elements and interesting textures, like cloth flaps and patches of different fabrics. Sound is important, too, with babies of this age responding to crackling, jingling, rattling, and music (available in Baby Einstein Playful Discoveries). Select stories with lifelike pictures of familiar items rather than abstract illustrations.
