02 Nov Sensory Development
A baby’s earliest form of learning is through developing their senses, allowing them to taste, touch, smell, hear, see, and move. By reading textured books, babies improve their ability to complete complex learning tasks. While your child may not be able to fully read books on their own yet, they can still enhance language development, motor skills, and problem solving through the use of books that you can touch and feel.
Touch and Feel Books
Most of our touch and feel books can be found in the alligator book bin in the children’s room.
Counting with a ladybug : explore the finger trails and cut-out shapes by James Mitchem and Dawn Sirett
These sensory toys are available in the J Library of Things.
If your baby puts objects in their mouth, or insists on touching everything, this is actually their way of learning about the world! Try simple sensory experiences to help them develop and grow.
