Eighteen months to two years: The big leap is made -babies follow verbal directions and begin to speak, as well as having more ability to concentrate. These books introduce concepts like 'one' and 'two', building on babies' early understanding of quantity. Books also help babies recognize shapes like circles, squares and triangles that make up everyday objects. "Look at Me!" is a combination of book and masks all in one. Die cut 'handles' at the volume's edges make it easy for parents to grasp and hold up to their face or their child's face, while generously sized eye-holes leave vision unhampered. The text simply says, "Look at me!" while introducing the animal and the sound it makes. Babies and toddlers will love roaring like a lion, oinking like a pig, or grrrr-ing like a bear.
