High contrast baby books help babies to stimulate development, in the first months a baby develops sensations and patterns, so it is very helpful and good for the baby to discover colors and feel various materials like soft polyester. The book is strong stitching and absolutely safe for babies.

I Love You to the Moon and Back

By Amelia Hepworth, Tim Warnes

I Love You to the Moon and Back

Why this book?

It’s never enough to show love to your children. Telling love stories to your little one is very important. This book shows the love between a bear and a cub, who are together every single day. They show their love for each other in many ways. The illustration and story of this adorable book make the bear and cub so real and came right into my heart. For me, it is one of the best real love stories, love in a way how it means to be.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Why this book?

This one of the most classic picture books teaches counting the days of the week in a real child friendly and funny way as the hungry caterpillar is eating his way through the pages. A very educational and attractive way to learn for children. In so many years, I have read this to so many children and always the hungry Caterpillar shows a smile on my and the children's faces while he is eating his way through the pages of the book.

Miffy's Birthday

By Dick Bruna

Miffy's Birthday

Why this book?

As a Dutch co-author, I highly recommend the books of Miffy, the very known rabbit in the Netherlands and worldwide, who shares his experiences in colourful, child friendly and short books. This copy is about celebrating birthdays. I love the good colorful illustrations and the imagination of Miffy. For children, this is the perfect combination, as a child loves birthdays, presents and especially from grandparents.
