I remebered learning at medical school that young babies couldn't see in colour and thats why they were so drawn to black nd white, so I searched for this type of book when my little girl was born. This was one of my favourites it's short and simple and she loved it. Babies are drawn to faces anyway so she was hooked from when she was tiny. At first she would stare as I showed her the book as she got older she would reach out for it and sarted to appreciate the crinkly noise it made. She can turn the pages heself now and loves to chew it. It has lasted from 4 weeks and is still one of her favs at 6 months a great buy.

My little boy loves this and is fascinated by the black and white faces and patterns. He also likes to give it a good chewing as it is the perfect size for little gums and pudgy hands.

This book was able to hold the attention of our 7 week old boy for ages. He was fascinated by the contrasting colours and pictures. Definitely recommended.

This book has become a fast favorite for my 21-week-old daughter.
The book has three pages entitled Daddy, Mummy and Baby. The pages make excellent crunching noises and there's a small velcro strap sewen to the book to ensure it doesn't fall out of your baby's pushchair.
This purchase was worthwhile.

This is a great book for all babies.
However, the high contrast colours and mirror make it especially good for babies and children with visual problems. As do the book's tactile and auditory qualities, adding extra dimensions to the book, making it more interesting for children who can't see well.

I ordered this book after reading recommendations on amazon and my baby seems to love it. He loves staring at the faces and the other patterns on the pages. The book crinkles so he loves to feel it and the velcro strap to attach it to cot/pram is a great feature. The book looks boring to parents but baby loves it! A great buy.

My baby boy seems to really like this book and has been fascinated by it from 3 months old. It will actually stop him crying. He looks at it for much longer than the cot book of a similar design. Money well spent.

My 2 month old son loves this book. I purchased both this book and also First Cot Book (First Focus) - and this one is the better of the two.

Within 10 minutes of using this book my son learnt how to turn the pages (well, he learnt that if he pushed the page up, that daddy would help finish turning the page) - and he really loves being able to control what page he looks at.

There are 6 pages, a picture of a man's face, woman's face and baby's face, and some patterns on the other 3. My son only has an interest in the 3 faces for now, and doesn't show the same interest in the patterns compared to some of the patterns found in First Cot Book (First Focus).

The other nice feature is a velcro strap that can be used to attach the book to a bouncer's bar to keep the book in place if you get tired holding it up (although at 2 months my son can't enjoy the hanging book much yet).
