5.0 out of 5 stars Great for babies, 27 Mar 2007
This review is from: Baby's Very First Book:Faces (Rag Book)
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.

Unfortunately, Dr Hedges' knowledge is out of date.
Newborn babies CAN see in colour (another baby myth up the Swannee), but they are effectively short-sighted with everything more than approximately 12 inches away being out of focus.

So that mobile hanging from the ceiling, be it black and white or coloured, had better be on a long string :)

Not true, Mr Bradbury. Recent research has shown that SOME babies may be able to distinguish colour from 2 weeks of age - NOT newborn babies. And, given that you reject evolution (judging by your review on Galapagos), everything that you say must be taken with a pinch of salt.
