New to Bounty?
As a new parent, a snuggle on your lap with a book can be very soothing for both you and your baby.
Reading also helps develop a child’s ear for language and rhythm, aids future speech development, and encourages listening skills. With developing memory and understanding, a baby may start having favourite books.
All of this contributes to books being an ideal gift to give a new parent, or baby top start their collection of classics from very early on. Who wouldn’t want to be there person who gave a baby their favourite book, right?
