Baby's First Book: Animals High-Contrast, Black & White Book For Newborns
This charming high-contrast, black and white book is an introduction to sea animals and includes bold images to help stimulate your child's developing mind.
Designed for babies 6 weeks to 6 months, the bold black-and-white high-contrast images will engage your baby and provide a calming, natural learning experience.
Babies respond to the strong contrast between black and white, which helps to stimulate development within your baby's eyes. With all the activity going on around a newborn baby it is easy for his/her brain to become completely overwhelmed. High contrast shapes and patterns provide your baby with something simple and engaging to focus on, which in turn will allow his/her mind to rest.
High-contrast shapes are usually very basic and may even appear to be a little boring to adults, but they are designed to hold your baby's attention.
Researchers have shown that newborns actually prefer to look at black and white images, rather than bright colors....(that you will see in most "general" newborn baby books).
Contrasting colors are most appealing to babies. Black and white provide the greatest contrast. Black and white are the easiest for your baby to perceive.
Your baby can see clearly at birth and can fixate and maintain his/her gaze intently on an object. Allowing your child to repeatedly look at these contrasting black and white images will help increase your baby's attention span.
There have been studies where many parents have reported that their newborn's attention span increased from 10 seconds to 90 seconds after only one week of looking at black and white image books for just a few minutes a day.
Your baby will track appealing objects with his/her eyes. The more appealing the object, the more intense and prolonged the tracking. When you use high-contrast images your child will be able to track with more ease because of his/her increased interest. Tracking helps your baby to learn where an object is and how it differs from its background.
When your baby scans, he/she learns how to see and compare entire objects. This ability eventually helps him/her to distinguish all the objects in the environment.
The large images in this book will help to calm and also captivate your baby's interest while at the same time provide the building blocks for his/her developing mind.
