‘Black and white contrasting pictures maximise visual stimulation and appear to encourage infant development in the early months’. – Jennifer Gregor, Paediatric doctor, Melbourne, Australia.
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. Mesmerisedwill 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.
