A fingertrail storybook specially designed for older babies, with finger trails to trace and textures to touch-and-feel.
A delightful first storybook designed specially for older babies to share stories. The book has die-cut textures to explore and finger-trails for baby to trace and follow while listening to the story and looking at the pictures. With beautiful, warm illustrations to capture the imagination, and a strong, rhythmic read-aloud text, this book is rich with every-day detail for the reader to talk about with their little one. Each spread is a compete story that allows the baby and parent to spend time looking, talking about, exploring and touching the page. These books help the adult to teach their baby about the world around them and to encourage language learning and communication with their little one as they play/read together.
