Baby Touch: Busy Baby
Published by Ladybird Books
Busy Baby is part of the Baby Touch series by Ladybird. This is the first board book I have had that is accompanied with an audio CD.
My 12 month old has been crawling for the last month, so I can relate to the title of this beautifully presented interactive board book. We follow the busy baby in the bright red car as he journeys across busy streets, through the jungle, past a farm and finally up a hill to return back home. The text is simple and rhymes throughout, with sound effects for the cars and animals that appear. The accompanying audio CD has ten tracks consisting of instrumental baby music, perfect to play on car journeys or at home.
Like the rest of the Baby Touch series, there are lots of textures for baby to touch, like the squishy red car, a furry lion and a woolly sheep. You'll also spot a clever die-cut window which reveals baby on one side and when you turn the page it reveals a butterfly.
With bright bold colours and simple shapes, this will keep any busy baby entertained, and the audio CD is a lovely addition to baby's CD collection. Other titles in the Baby Touch series are; Tickle Me!, Tummy Time and Night, Night. Busy Baby is available to buy in all good bookshops and online.
