A Montessori-inspired series of board books for your baby’s first year, specifically designed to nurture infant visual development using black, white, and red shapes.
Combining the latest science with Montessori theory, this beautifully illustrated series follows babies as they grow and change during their first year of life. Each book in the set—Big or Small?, The Garden, Animals, and Follow Me!—explores a different theme using shapes and colors friendly to babies’ developing eyes and minds. Children from 0 to 12 months can discover plants and animals, learn to distinguish objects by size, and practice tracing paths with their fingers!
