5.0 out of 5 stars My month old fascinated by this book 1 Sep 2004
By Lisa W
This book has really caught the attention of my baby, right from when he was a week old. He stays very calm and focused while looking at the pictures. This is one of the few things that has really caught his interest at this early stage. I highly reccomend this book to new parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating 8 Feb 2005
Our 3 week old daughter will stop what she's doing when we show her this book. It calms her down and literally captivates her. Not very interesting for an adult to look at but truly facinating for a Newborn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cot Book for Newborns 21 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Our daughter was given this book as a gift when she was born and it is without a doubt the best cot book around. It has bold images on either side and my baby loved the picture with black wavy lines as well as the mirror. It kept her fascinated for ages and is very good for developing visual awareness in newborns. When my daugher woke from naps I would fold out the book and she would lie for 10 or 15mins just staring at it. Very handy for getting her used to being independent from an early age and feeling happy just lying in bed. It also saved us a few times when out and about as I used to put it in her pram.
Excellent buy. Best one on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars our 10 week old child loves this book 27 Mar 2003
By A Customer
our 10 week old child loves this book and has since he was about 5 weeks. It calms him down and makes him smile - much more so than other similar books. Don't know what it is about this one but it has become our favorite!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 30 Nov 2006
By C. Peak
I first folded out this book and put it in my son's moses basket when he was a week old, thinking he was probably a bit too young for it - but he loved it. It has stayed in his cot ever since. He has spent hours calmly staring at the pictures and keeping himself amused. He particularly likes the picture of the snail - 'hypno-snail' as we call him! Every night, as he settles down to sleep, our little man 'coos' to the snail until he drifts off.

Worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Buy for Newborns 25 Sep 2006
By Dagny T
My daughter was captivated by this book from the minute she moved from moses basket to cot. I have just dug it out of the loft as I am expecting my second child shortly. I have heard that the unique appeal this book has for babies is the lack of a variety of colours. This book is wholly black and white with touches of yellow, and young babies find it easier to distinguish patterns of high contrast like these until their colour recognition becomes more developed. Well, it worked a treat with mine, anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars My tiny baby smiles and squeals at the pictures 30 Nov 2001
By A Customer
My 10 week old baby has had this book since he was one month old. He is gripped by the bold pictures, and the excited noises and expressions he makes convince me that this is the best thing I have bought so far for his entertainment. As it folds out I can stand it on end next to him when he is playing in his cot or lying on the floor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect first book! 14 Feb 2007
I bought this for my son (now nearly 2 years old) when he was born,I saw it and the images looked so bold and striking. It kept him amused for hours in his moses basket as the images are so easy to focus on for a babys eyes. Now My daughter who is six weeks old is just as big a fan as my son was I personally have found this book fantastic! A must have for any Parent with a young baby.

We've actually put this zig-zagged on one side of my sons play gym and it gives him another thing to look at. The mirror is great.
