BABY TALES

 
Favourite Faces
 
Favourite Faces,
For Boys and Girls

For the first few months of baby’s life her vision is pretty fuzzy but she can make out light, shapes and movement and see about 20 to 30 centimetres in front of her. Faces are the most interesting thing to her as well as high contrast colours such as black, white and red. Tailored Tale’s “Favourite Faces” puts together high contrast colour images of her favourite faces – mom, dad, grandparents, siblings or other special people in her life. The faces are simple and geometric in style, yet recognisable and familiar. Favourite Faces comes in a useful concertina style format – you can stand it up next to your baby on the floor, place it on the changing table or simply enjoy showing the book to your baby and delighting in her reactions.

First Words, for Boys

From about three months your baby starts to enjoy more visually stimulating and colourful pictures. Faces, especially ones he recognises, are still his favourite. Watch his delight as he recognises mommy and daddy and other favourite people that have been especially illustrated into his very own word book. First Words (for boys) also includes colourful visuals of toys boys love such as cars and trucks. Because your baby learns from repetition, saying words over and over again along with the corresponding picture will set the course for understanding his first words.
