|Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star - Light Up Sound Board Book|
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star has been a favourite song in this house ever since BB was born. On our early car journeys he would get upset (I like to think because he could not see me), but as soon as I started singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star he would stop crying, and often even fall asleep. The same song would also work when he was in the pram and getting restless or hungry toward the end of a journey.
Even though he's now two, it's still a favourite. Recently we were given a copy of beautiful board book which has buttons to press, lighting up pictures and creating sounds to accompany the telling of this favourite nursery rhyme by a Parragon Rep at Britmums Live. My first thought was that BB might be too old for this book, but no, not at all! He loves it.
Now that he is starting to talk he 'reads' along with me. He insists that we read this book every night, and he goes through all 4 of the buttons to hear all the sounds. I have been pointing at the individual words as I say them to help him get used to the idea that text has meaning and he demonstrated that he understood that as we waited in line at our corner shop this morning, tracing words on crisp bags with his fingers and 'reading'.
The book is made of really thick board and is of excellent quality. The lights and sounds include the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and the sound of an owl hooting (our favourite). They are powered by batteries which are replaceable via a childproof, screw fastened battery case. The book is in the Little Learner's range and says it is suitable from 1 year, though I'm sure you could read it to a baby younger than that. I would definitely recommend it from our experience with it.
