16 Parent as pedagogic subject in relation to early reading The pictures in the book have been chosen from what research says about what babies like to look at. They have also been tried out with a group of babies. The text for parents tells you a little about why the pictures and words have been chosen. Reading with babies brings together many of the things they need most to grow and develop–closeness, safety, touch, seeing, hearing and learning about sounds as well as gradually learning what they mean. …. They start to learn about the world and develop their thinking skills from looking at pictures and hearing words with you. Right from the start … loving reading with your baby.
