Baby's Very First Book (Farm) £2.50 @ Amazon
You're never too young to have books in your life; I read to my kids whilst they were still on the inside, they had cloth books, crinkle books, board books and bath books pretty much right from day one which might explain why they're such bookworms now.
This book is lovely and simple and designed especially for tiny babies aged up to about six months - it's got crinkly pages which babies adore to scrunch up in their little hands and a mirror which always captures their attention.
The mirror is a valuable addition because babies love to look at their own reflection. Inside, the pages have simple faces of farmyard animals and patterns in black, white and red.
It's widely accepted that babies respond best to the high contrast patterns and the reviews this little book has received do nothing but back that up. The babies who have this item utterly adore it and all parents are in agreement that it's a fabulous buy.
Amazon have reduced it down from £4.99 to £2.50 and there's no delivery to pay, of course, which makes this a super little bargain and a great very first book.
