I discovered bestselling DK Baby books several years ago when my oldest son (he’s 10 years old now!) was a baby. We both loved the colorful, real life pictures. I can’t even begin to count the hours we spent reading our favorite DK baby books together. I remember him being so little that I would have to help him reach out and touch the pages. He especially loved to feel the lion’s mane.
I am a DK blog ambassador. This post is part of a sponsored campaign. I received compensation for my compensation, but my review and opinions are my own. As always, I only recommend the things I truly love to my blog readers.
As a new parent, I wondered, When should I start reading books to my baby? You may be surprised to learn that even experts agree that no baby is too young to benefit from the reading experience. DK Baby Touch and Feel books are a wonderful early learning choice for babies and toddlers ages 0 to 3 years old. These books are filled with pages to encourage touch and feel interaction with all sorts of different textures and glitter sparkles.
We invited a few of our little friends over for a “Baby Book Club” meeting starring the Baby Touch and Feel books. It was fun to see which of the books drew their attention first. Animal-themed books like Animals, Farm and Roar! Roar! with their variety of textures (fluffy, soft, scaly, furry and more) seemed to be the crowd favorites with this toddler group.
One little girl had just turned 2 years old, and couldn’t get enough of the Happy Birthday book. She loved to look at and touch the glitter and foil pictures of birthday cake, balloons and presents. Of course she got to take this book home with her!
Another reason we love the Baby Touch and Feel books is their size. They measure about 6.25 by 6.25 inches, which is perfect for little hands to hold and carry. The books are extra durable with their padded covers and board book pages.
If When sticky fingers touch our DK books, I can easily wipe them clean with a damp cloth. The pages are rounded for baby’s safety.
Everyone who attended our “Baby Book Club” meeting enjoyed exploring the pages of DK Baby Touch and Feel books. All the parents agreed that interactive books like these are perfect for early learning. Babies and toddlers will be attracted to the colorful photos and they will want to explore the pages with their tiny hands and fingers. Touching the different types of textures is a sensory experience babies and young children will want to do over and over again.
