This charming board book features striking die-cut pages, rhyming text and colourful pictures about faces, both animal and human. The design, including a mirror on the last spread that lets the reader see their own face and its expressions as well, is geared towards encouraging young children to engage with the world around them. Babies instinctively focus on faces, so this book stimulates that impulse to nurture their curiosity.
Reading the rhyming text helps to familiarise babies with the patterns of speech, and is ideal for helping young children learn to speak and read. Talking and reading go together and this helps a baby to listen. Listening and talking help lay the foundations for language development.
Contains `active' words that encourage children to interact with the book.
