Infant black and white books
HuggaMind - High-Contrast Research on Infant Brain DevelopmentBlack and white baby books and toys seem to fascinate babies. They may look simple and a little dull to adults, but babies seem to be irresistibly drawn to them. They can see shapes by looking at the lines where light and dark meet. Your baby will learn to focus on your face, and will start tracking you with her eyes and turning her head to follow you. Try making faces to help your baby focus her vision. Stick out your tongue, smile, or wrinkle your nose. All of these actions help baby to start reading your face, and focusing her vision.

Reading to baby doesn't come naturally for every parent, especially when your little one is too young to truly interact during reading time. But with every page turned, you're stimulating cognitive development and helping to establish a love of reading that will last long past the toddler years. If you are looking for a few perfect books to add to your child's collection, we have the scoop on the best types of books to promote cognitive development and a lifelong passion for reading. Research indicates that high-contrast colors like black and white register most strongly in a baby's brain and help the optic nerve to grow. Odds are, your little one won't start turning the pages or even paying much attention to them until he's a few months old.
