This is the perfect first book for your bubbas with crisp, contrasting pictures to captivate them from day 1. It takes a while for newborns to be able to focus properly and see shades of colour so this book is purpose made to suit their simple vision. We bought it for Hudson who absolutely loved it and actually allowed him to stay on his tummy for a little longer if we placed it in front of him. He was NOT a fan of tummy time so any trick to distract him for a little while longer was appreciated! It is one of the most recommended baby books-specifically for ages 0-6 months and is also used in some special care nurseries for babies. A perfect, thoughtful gift for a new arrival.
Mesmerised has been listed at No.1 by the State Library of Victoria in their list of recommended books for babies!
Young babies will be mesmerised by the black and white images in this gorgeous book. From a ladybug and its spots, to a snail crawling up the side of the page, the whimsical designs will delight both parent and baby. Great for propping open on the playmat beside baby and also for encouraging ‘tummy time’.
Black and white images with sharp outlines are much easier for baby to see in the first few months of life when it is hard for them to focus, and hard for them to see shades of colour. Mesmerised will not only keep your baby stimulated & engaged, but will also help to nurture visual development. Unlike other black and white baby books on the market, Mesmerised images have no unnecessary detail, colour or line work. The images have been designed in a very simple style to make them as easy as possible for newborn babies to see.
Mesmerised is currently being used in the Special Care nurseries of Westmead Childrens’ Hospital and St Georges Hospital, SE Sydney, as the book of choice for young babies.
