Six to Twelve Months: At this age, babies are responding to words and actions. They're actively listening and the more they hear, the sooner they will be able to form their own words. Participatory games are important at this level. Lift-the-flap books (effectively, the game of peek-a-boo in a book) help children recognise objects and develop object permanence. The books are chunky, with easy-to-turn foam-filled pages. Age-appropriate toys are included, like a teether or a button to push that responds with "woof" or "meow.""Meow": One of the most popular pets - and the animal baby is most likely to know - sounds off in this amusing foam board book. There are toy cats; happy ones that look as if a child drew them; and noisy ones. A touch-and-feel fur element at the end of the book, as well as a sound chip of a "meowing" cat, enhances the experience.
