Bekah & Max - Is Lief vir Baba (Afrikaans)
Your little one may not know what the pictures in a book mean, but they can focus on them, especially faces, bright colors, and contrasting patterns. When you read or sing lullabies and nursery rhymes, you can entertain and soothe your infant.
Reading aloud to your baby is a wonderful shared activity you can continue for years to come — and it’s an important form of stimulation including teaching, communication, as well as introducing concepts such as numbers, letters, colors, and shapes in a fun way. Plus it also builds listening, memory, and vocabulary skills.
Believe it or not, by the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language. The more stories you read aloud, the more words your child will be exposed to, and the better he or she will be able to talk!
This book is available in English and Afrikaans.
