Look: A Tummy Time Book
A wordless concertina board book of big, bright faces to place around the baby on the floor at tummy time―family faces on one side and toys on the other―by award-winning author/illustrator Gavin Bishop.
This safe and sturdy fold-out book is a perfect gift, with compelling illustrations of the things babies love. Friendly faces from the whole family combine with familiar toys and objects, drawn in bold lines with a striking minimalist color palette.
Tummy time helps to strengthen a baby's back, neck, and shoulders. The strong, simple images stimulate developing eyesight, allowing babies to see things up close and from a different point of view.
The images are perfect for introducing first words and concepts as baby grows, with 12 family faces―including the dog―and 12 objects that babies love to hold and explore―soft toys, ball, keys, an enticing pair of spectacles and more.

This wordless book is a boldly colored novelty book to inspire babies during tummy time. The pages are accordion style with illustrations on both the front and back giving a good variety of faces and objects to look at. While black, white, and red are the standard choices for young infants to gaze upon, this book uses golden yellow, blue, orange, and green that would be of interest to slightly older infants. I like that the faces are inclusive and use a variety of ages and color choices for wider appeal. The illustrations are clear and simple depictions of common objects that would be great to use as a language builder as well. I love that there are books like this that encourage tummy time.
