Like a mermaid, a dragon and a narwhal.

We, as mums, start singing nursery rhymes for our newborn babies from day one. So, why not get a book filled with those cute little rhymes? This book also has a sing-along CD that helps your baby to learn the words and interact with the music.

This is not exactly a book, but it is a helpful wall hanging to teach babies body parts. You can leave it hanging on the wall and your baby will stare at it and go through it daily.

Many speech experts believe that using flashcards is a wonderful way to start teaching your baby to talk. They are ideal for infant stimulation, as they make learning new words fun and interactive. These flashcards cover numbers, and there are others that cover alphabets and simple objects names.
Finally, this is one of the best books for newborns. When teaching babies words, we should focus on good literacy foundations as much as simple and basic words. Speaking to your baby in full sentences. That they are grammatically correct helps them develop good and correct language foundations from a young age. We know, baby talk is irresistible, but throw in full sentences every now and then for their language and speech development.
