Some of the pages in the books have a picture of a light bulb. When you press that light bulb, your child is taught yet another lesson. Each book is filled with fun for your infant or toddler. The following descriptions are just from a few of the many titles available.
If I Were…
This story is about a little girl pretending she is different animals. It introduces animals and the sounds they make, colors, and some simple emotions. Some of the light bulbs in this book are for learning tempo, body parts, ways to move, and counting.
Let’s Get Busy, Baby
This book features infants and toddlers learning about everyday words. Many words that are considered “baby’s firsts” are featured in this book.

Guess How Much I Love You
