My First Book Series by Sophie Helenek + Special Deal
My First Book Series was developed by Sophie Helenek. Sophie's daughter was her inspiration for writing this series. After seeing her daughter's reaction to a M.C Escher book, she started researching baby's cognitive development. Sophie wanted to create a series of books that would stimulate a baby's cognitive development, and would grown with them into their toddler years.
Each book is designed to stimulate babies and toddlers of different developments. Youngest babies will be drawn to the black and white illustrations and the high contrast patterns. Once baby starts to see colors, they will start remembering pictures and words. Each page has a picture and one word, this simple design lets baby learn to memorize the book. At the end of the book, all the objects are together on one page, which also helps baby learn and memorize. Recently, My First Book Shapes, Fruits and Musical Instruments won the Mom's Choice Award Gold Seal. You can read more about it HERE.
One thing I love about this books, is how sturdy they are. I have two boys 5 and under and my 2 year old T, has the nickname “tiny tornado”. This books are built to be very sturdy. You (aka your toddler) can also write on them with dry erase markers, because they will wipe clean.
Reading to my children is very important to me. I have been reading to my children, since before they were born. Reading to your children helps promote listening skills, increases the baby's exposure to vocabulary, increases attention and memory, helps babylearn to understand the meaning of words, promotes learning and a love of reading. I was sent these books to review, and I was excited to show T.
My First Book Sky Wonders: This book is about objects in the sky: moon, star, cloud, planet etc. I love astronomy, so I was excited to teach early concepts to T.

T loved this musical instruments book. We read this one several times.
Final Thought: I really enjoyed this series. Not all board books are created equal. My First Book Series is an engaging group of books, that T loved. T is working on learning new words, and these books really stimulated his curiosity. I love that he asks to be read to now, and these have been our go to books the last several days.
