Book Blocks are chunky little board books that are shaped like blocks, the perfect first books for babies! Featuring high-contrast colors, eye-catching shapes, and colorful patterns (incorporating the latest scientific research about vision development), these mini books are designed to entice infants to focus and develop their visual acuity.

     Four little block-shaped mini books, each measuring 2-3/8 x 2-3/8 inches, comprise this adorable set:

     Book 1: Black and White--simple but interesting shapes moving into more complex shapes and patterns

     Book 2: Red, Blue, and Yellow--introduces primary colors and slightly more complex shapes, moving into real patterns with multiple colors

     Book 3: Color and Pattern--secondary colors and more complex patterns

     Book 4: Visual Excitement--subtle shades and complicated patterns 

Simply sit with your baby a few minutes each day and turn the pages, encouraging baby to focus on each page. As your baby develops, you will be able to hand the book blocks back and forth, and soon your baby will be able to grasp the book blocks and explore for her or himself. 

   • The set of 4 books is presented in a slim box, 9-1/2 x 2-3/8 x 2, with an acetate window that reveals the book blocks inside.

   • Studies show that during the first year of life, babies' visual skills develop dramatically. While a month-old infant will prefer sharply defined, black and white edges and patterns, by 4 months of age, most babies can distinguish even subtle shades and respond to repeating patterns.

   • These little books provide a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to interact with baby. Just a few minutes a day of looking at and tracking shapes and colors helps babies to develop good visual acuity.

   • Designed by Dan Stiles, who is known for his appealing use of color and pattern, these bloox make a great toy that will continue to be fun to play with long after babies have learned to see as well as adults.

BABY'S FIRST BOOK BLOCKS: Boxed sets by Dan Stiles is a delightful Baby's First Toys/ Visual Tools/ Board Book for ages 0-3. What a delight! I love the different shapes,colors and size of each block. Each block contains different vibrant colors and shapes. They are well constructed. Four little block-shaped mini books, small enough for little hands. I loved them and would suggest any new parent or grandparent to purchase for their little ones. This should be the first set of blocks you purchase for your little one, to help teach them colors. A boxed set, that is fun and will help your little one with visual acuity. Easy to hold for little hands. A great boxed set! I would highly recommend this set! Received for an honest review from the publisher. Rating: 5 Heat Rating: N/A Reviewed by: AprilR, courtesy of My Book Addiction and More
