My First ABC Book

Baby isn't old enough to know any letters yet, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun with them! When you share an alphabet book with your baby give him plenty of time to enjoy the pictures while you say the letter. You can talk about other things that start with that letter too. Even though your baby won't start recognizing letters for a few years, you can still start teaching him that letters are special!
