On Our Shelves Now
Make the best of tummy time with your baby with this two-in-one fold-out book of festive babies and high-contrast black and white!
This small and sturdy accordion book opens up to stand alone in a crib, on the carpet, or on a bed, making it easy for your baby to enjoy tummy time, all the time. One side features vibrantly illustrated smiling babies and other cheerful images and the opposite side is in high-contrast black and white patterns, perfect for baby’s developing eyes. And with two reflective pages your baby can see him- or herself and practice those future smiles! Since the American Academy of Pediatrics and other top pediatric organizations around the world recommend tummy time to help “build the strength and coordination needed for rolling over, crawling, reaching, and playing” this book is not just fun, it’s also good for your baby. Also available: TummyTime™: Animal Parade.

"One of the Best Books of 2019" —Parents Magazine
"In the first few months of life, babies see only in black-and-white. These wordless concertinas feature an array of jaunty animals playing musical instruments and a bevy of round baby faces peering at viewers. On one side, images are seen in black-and-white; flip the books over and similar pictures appear in color. In both titles are reflective pages for infants to see themselves." —School Library Journal
"This is a tummy time game changer!” —Dream Readers Kids
