How to Read a Book for a New Born Baby?

If you remember reading in my previous contents, I had mentioned that you could read books to a new born baby. This way you could teach them new languages, you could educate them from that age. Yes, it is very true and I have seen this through my own eyes and experienced it by my own self. It is also true that even when your baby is not born, you could emotionally engage with them during your pregnancy. When you read a funny book and start laughing, your baby will start kicking and moving and get very excited and happy. Unlike, when you read a sad or emotional story book; your baby start stretching so hard and you right away feel like they do not want you to continue. If you have even experienced being in a funeral (God forbids) and if you experienced crying during that funeral, you right away feel that your baby wants you to just get out of that sad environment and simply change your place. Providing a positive and happy environment has a huge impact on your baby’s mental development and its functions.

Your tone, in which you read a book for your new born baby is extremely important. Mother’s voice has magic! Lower your voice while reading a book for your little angel. Position yourself closer to your baby while reading. Make sure to read it in a very soft and sweet voice so that it calms and comforts your baby mentally and also for the mental growth of your baby as well as bonding you along with your baby, this is a true miracle.



When you are reading for your new born baby angel, make sure those stories are positive, educative and fun for yourself. When you enjoy reading stories, your true feeling could be felt very effectively by your baby through your voice. In this very moment your baby is actually grasping what you are feeding them through reading. Remember! Words are very powerful if translated and transferred properly and effectively. You need to pay attention where to raise your voice a little more. When and which part of the story you sound funny for them, how to read it when you are reading a sentence and how to read it when you are reading a question or a surprising and astonishing sentence. It is through your words that you make your baby the person who he will become one day.

As I said there is magic at your (mother’s) voice and words. You could help your baby in their cognitive development through reading. You are developing a bond with your baby which is everlasting, by being there for your little one every single night at their nighttime stories. We all know that mothers do have a good bond with their children as well as fathers. The bond which could be made through your nighttime stories is actually much more powerful. Doing so, your child will run late from the school but will never ever forget to come and hug & kiss you before leaving home. They would rather miss a favorite sport than to go without you.

How to choose books for your baby in their early ages?

You could continue to read nighttime / bed time stories until your child is at the ages of 3 to 6 months old. Of course, you could do so for as long as you wish to. At that moment you could offer some soft plastic books which are designed not in color but black and white shapes to let your baby play with it. Doing so your baby’s eyesight and its functional development will be very much enhanced and facilitated. As you may know that at the early ages baby’s eyes are unable to see in color but black and white. Therefore, you would offer them something which is useful for them at that age.

Below I would provide you with some examples of baby books for their early ages so that you could visualize.

You could always consider e-books as well but in order to do so I would suggest you play and listen to it by yourself first due to the quality of its sound and articulation which is the most important part of it. When you feel like it is the right tool for your baby, then you could decide to expose your baby to listen to it. I am saying this because nothing can compare with the love and compassion which can be delivered through your (mother’s) voice to your baby.


Which colors would you choose to expose your baby with, first?

Once they reach the ages of 9 – 12 months you could offer some color books. Doing so they will be exposed in colors specially red. You may have noticed that baby toys are mostly manufactured in red color. So know that there is a good and very valid reason behind it because after black and white they actually start seeing red color.

By offering the right colors at the right moment of their life, you are actually helping them build proper coordination between their eyes, hands and brain. In doctors term, this is called (eye hand coordination) but in reality brain is very much involved in the eye hand coordination which makes this function successful. Therefore, reading and delivering the quality sound through your words help in developing your baby’s brain. So even before thinking to develop visuals in your baby, you must think of a way to facilitate their brain development which then becomes critically important for their eye hand coordination.


How to maintain a healthy eyesight?

An eye examination through an optometrist could be worth every year for assuring to maintain a healthy eyesight. If you have a pediatrician, you could ask him or her for a reference but if not you could locate one nearby you.

In order to maintain a good and healthy eyesight avoid exposing your baby to digital objects. Do not let them in front of a TV for more than 15 minutes per day in their early ages.

Consider to have as much colorful fruits and vegetables as possible. All the colorful vegetables and fruits are very rich sources of Vitamin A which is best recommended by Optometrists during your child’s early ages. In fact, we must consider serving them during our pregnancy at first and foremost.


How to maintain a good mental health and proper brain functions?

Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 12 are very good for the brain development of your baby. They could be found in fish, shrimps and all sorts of sea foods. Dairy products for instance eggs are good sources of Omega vitamins. Omegas are actually very good vitamins for all ages. It helps in concentration, it results in productivity, it calms and relieves the brain and gives a good boost for its better functioning.

    I like the choice of products to help new born babies become exposed to languages. I remember hearing how newborns are very drawn to bright colorful things. I noticed many of the products suggested on this page contain a lot of color so that is good. As a child, I would be very drawn towards that National Geographic book.

      Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate your time and your positive feedback about the post.

      I am glad you found it helpful and you liked it. I agree with you about that book and the fact that babies love colorful things right after their black and white period.

    I really like the different products which you have recommended through the article. i think the point you make about introducing colour books to babies at a early age is good idea. I wonder if this helps with a child imagination earlier on… I see the appeal of audio books but i think reading out loud to your new-born would be far better, but then again, I don’t have any children. 

    Thanks for a in-depth review.

      Thank you so much for your comment. I appreciate your time in going through the article. I am glad you liked it. 

      After the black and white color, babies see red color secondly. That’s why I tried choosing products that had more red color in it. Yeah I agree with you about the fact that reading out to our babies are much better for better bonding with our baby than audio books. Still it depends what type of audio book. It is a good idea to listen to it first before exposing the baby.

    This is a really lovely article to read through, it is very important for us as parents to be able to be very selective when it comes to getting this for our kids as these things can easily enhance their learning. These baby books are very good and they’ll be so nice to the benefits of the baby, I’d love to get some.

      Thank you very much for your comment. I appreciate your time in going through the content. 

      Reading books for our baby is the start of deepest connection with them through out their life. 

      The development of their speech and language learning depends greatly on how much words per day they hear from us through educational books and toys by our engagements.

    It is very true you can read to a new baby. I and my wife practised it with my second born, we start while she was pregnant. We would pick musical equipment and sing to her tommy, sudden we will notice his change in position. For us we are Christians, we later started reading the bible to our child and it makes a lot of difference. We continued and when he was a baby we did the same thing and he has turned out unique.

      Thank you so much for your comment and for your time in reading through the article. I deeply appreciate it.

      I thank you also for sharing your experience as it adds up more details and useful information for the rest of parents, specially new parents.

      With no doubts reading the holy books are beneficial and the true value of humanity could be taught to the baby as young and as early as in the mother’s womb. 

      The light is one light only! Humanity is above all. Religions are people’s believe. All religions in the history are the proof of existence of that one source of light. It is important for our children to know these things in order to have respect for all the religions. This is only my point of view according to my own knowledge and understanding. 

      There is no doubt about the uniqueness of a kid, if all the necessities to stimulate and educate them were provided in those early ages.

      Kind regards,

    I have been taking a course in which we are learning that the first 3 -4 years of our baby are key for it’s learning. During those years, we need to give a lot of stimulation to our baby, even though they don’t seem to be understanding it, because there brain in fact is. And this involves playing an instrument to them, etc. And among many other things, of course reading to them. So I’d love to get some nice books for my baby.

    I have 2 daughters, a 2-year-old and a 6-year-old. The younger one likes to put anything in her mouth and as a father, I must admit I don’t have that much patience. But I learned that it is part of their growing up to explore things. I like the cloth books for babies that are valid from 3 months to 4 years old. I used to have 2 but they are somewhat “destroyed” by my younger one… so I guess it is time for a replacement. 

    I also like the National Geographic Little Kids. My elder one is getting very curious about many things and she likes dinosaurs and history at the moment, but she is curious generally with anything. I guess this is how it is with kids at this time? But thanks for the recommendation, these are some things for me to consider.

    You have presented a wealth of information about reading with the young ones. I can identify with the point about reaction to mom’s voice. Whenever my daughter is fussing and just won’t settle down, I pick up one of her books and start reading. This always gets her attention and soon she will be peeping in the book and responding to what I am reading. I take your suggestion about choosing colours carefully and keeping the reading material light and happy in themes. Thanks for the reminder of the advantages of books/reading with small kids, and the samples.

    Wow. The article is very informative. It is for Intentional parents. Parents who are determined to do what it takes and to pay attention to minor and major details of their babies development, understanding that , what happens to the baby at that level will be part of him or her as she grows, even to adulthood.

    Hi. I find it amazing to be able to influence our baby’s mental capability through reading to him. It is wonderful to know that the tone of the voice do have a special effect on these small brain. It makes us realize that we have such a big role to play in our child’s development.

    Above all I never realized the importance of introducing a newborn with black and white cloth book first before gradually moving on to colors. Thank you so much for denoting the importance of this. I usually go straight onto the colored ones.

    What a nice article and a soft way to teach us how to read for babies. My ‘baby’ is almost 18 now, and I realize I have not been reading enough. Always too busy, too much in a rush. I was aware already then how time flies but am even more aware of that now.

    Reading just like music is a precious gift we can share with babies.

    1. Meena Avatar

      Hello Karin,

      Thank you very much for your time and your valuable comment. I really appreciate your time. We all are the same. You are not alone in this. We feel like we did not do enough at that time. Sure, the issue is always time and being too much busy. This is life unfortunately and we are human after all. We can not perform as machines.

      I wish you and your 18 year a wonderful life a head!

      All the very best!

    I couldn’t agree more, reading to your baby even if he is still in, your womb will develop your bonding and start his love for reading.

    Babies definitely are able to communicate with their parents especially with moms who are the primary caregiver.

    I’m fascinated with the National Geographic Little Kids First Book. I would assume we wait until your baby is able to understand complicated words and ideas like 4 to 5-year-olds and then we can start reading this book to him?



    1. Meena Avatar

      Hello Marita,

      Thank you for your time and comment. 

      The books are all set up in the post according to their age group and what effect it has on the baby. I agree with you for the fact that babies can not read that much complicated book but we can read to them. 

      By reading, pointing to the pictures with our fingers and by showing them we can expose them to more colors and more words. The more words they hear from us, the better it would be for their language nutrition.

      Hope it makes sense to you!

    Hello there!

    Wow! That was an eye-opening piece there. I never believed it is actually possible to read books for new born babies considering the fact that they neither talk nor seem to hear. It is really amazing to know that I can actually read educational books for them. I’ll definitely put this to practice.

    You have included a wide variety of options to chose from that will keep little ones learning whilst having fun!

    With so much emphasis on ensuring our children are learning as much as they can from very early on in life I think the author has touched on so many fundamental elements that are important for learning and development!

    This is great information!

    Please keep up the great work!

    I have never thought about reading for a new born but I played some classical music to the new born since I read somewhere that it is good for brain development and also help with the moods. But, this makes a lot of sense, I will start reading for the baby as well. Thank you so much for sharing such an informative studies. I will check out the book sets. I personally do not like the e-books, not unless I have no choice when they are older. Cheers!

    Meena, thank you for your post on Educational Baby Books. I am not a new mother by any means, but I am a grandmother and I found your article extremely interesting. I was especially intrigued by the section about reading to newborn babies. I probably had not really thought it through before. I know that hospitals tell you to talk to or read to coma patients because they can hear you. So I am very sure that the sound of a mother’s voice reading to her newborn will be important in the child’s educational development. Thank you for providing this insight.

    I believe that all babies should have lots of fun but I also believe that it is best to give babies educational toys that will develop their little minds. So they can learn have had fun at the same time. There are many baby toys out there that can help babies to become smarter at an early age which I think is a good investment. Thanks so much for a well-detailed post that will help so many people.

    I strongly agree with Jackson in tvo parent’s video. The very first few years of your child are very important and delicate part where you have to be very careful.  Like she said they are the very beginning of the rain development. And any thing that happens affects the overall development of the child. And like her guest responded, parents are the most important people in the  child’s early years. Thank you for this good resources

    Thanks for the informative review on educational baby books. I enjoyed reading the post: a lot of advice on books for babies, toddlers and young kids.

    I have two grandsons, and they like to listen their mother reading the books before they go to bed. My younger grandson likes to put everything in his mouth and chew. (he is  two years old). You gave me a solution to what kind of books to buy and read for him.

    Thank you again; I will definitely check the links you add to your article.

    Wow! This is amazing. I knew that a mother had a special impact on her baby, but I didn’t know that the latter was so sensitive to the mood of the environment. I also greatly appreciate how you use examples to illustrate this thoroughly.

    Yes, I agree it’s not what you say; it’s how you say it.

    I did not know that babies could only see in black and white when they are first born, then red within the first 9-12 months.

    The power of words is beyond words.

    More than anything, I think that you article would benefit from more fun facts about the anatomy of baby development.

    It’s nice to see you have different suggestions for different products accordingly.

    I cannot help but think, “What if a baby was born vegan/vegetarian?”

    Very neat and inspirational!

    Hi Meena. Thank you for a great post. To be fair I have no Idea that there are books for new born babies. This is huge discovery for me as it seems as a great educational toys to develop kids from very beginning of their life.  Looking on your reviews, some of them are just stunning, I especially like idea of cloth books. Looking forward to test them in practice.

      Hi Cogito,

      Thank you for the read trough. I appreciate your time and comment. 

      Yes, reading is one of the most important factor to the new born baby’s brain development same like talking and having that sweet conversation on a regular basis. As they say that same as the food nutrition, language nutrition is also important for the baby and it is going to be even better if it is done since they are new born. 

      Kind regards,

    This is a great idea and I have known some friends to use this technique of reading to their babies in a separate language in order to teach the growing child a new language (in addition to the primary language that is spoken in the area). The progression of new topics and concepts as they age is a wonderful guide to help choose appropriate content for the child. Thank you for sharing this important information!

      Hello Aly,

      Yes, this stage is best for teaching any additional languages to the baby. You’re very welcome. Glad you found it important.

    Excellent article. 

    I am a mother of five and grandmother to 10 wonderful children.

    Reading has always been an important part of my life and I regularly read to my children and continue now to read to my grandchildren when they are here.

    There is so much more information now about babies’ eye development than when my children were babies.

    How do they know at what age certain parts of vision develop? I mean the babies can’t yet talk about what they see.

    While my grandchildren are past the baby stage I really like these products and will keep them in mind for gifts for future grandchildren if I am fortunate enough to have more.

    Thanks for this informative article.

      Hello Deborah,

      Thank you for the read through and your kind encouragement. I appreciate that. 

      Yes, through studies and research more and more useful and life changing information has been revealed. Like the example of red dots in Glen Domen’s book. If you may have read or heard about it, not sure but it is just worth mentioning that it is an excellent book. In this book Glen gives a step by step explanation which is really worth reading and implementing. Babies could be thought Math through this meticulous steps of red dots and also helps in their eye development functionalities.

    Thank you for sharing this important information.

    I totally agree that it’s never to early to start reading to children and to encourage their development.  I used to love reading to my girls and to watch their reactions.

    Even just giving them the cloth books to chew on was part of their journey.

    You comment in relation to no more than 15 minutes in front of the TV is very important.  It shocks and scares me at the number of parents who let their children watch tablets and mobile phones on a continuous basis.  While out and about parents should be introducing their babies and children to the world around them and not leaving them to amuse themselves in front of a screen.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work.

    Wow, this article was so informative! I didn’t know that babies could only see black and white in the early stages of their lives. I personally haven’t had any kids yet, but we are thinking about it. When I have a child, I am defiantly going to use some of the great information you shared.

    The book that caught my attention and I’m sure the little one in the home will also enjoy is the Big Book of Why. I have always enjoyed the content produced by National Geographic. And I was surprised there is something for our little ones too. Thank you very much for this post.

      Hello Paolo,

      You’re very welcome! I am glad you found the ideal book for your little one. Although, it is not easy sometimes. We could get lost into the crowd very easily that’s why I did my best to make it much easier for parents by sharing examples which are visual and linked directly to the site where all could easily find and buy it if they want to.

      I am glad you liked it.

      Kind regards,

    I am so loving your website. I wish I stumbled to such before having my babies. I now enjoy my read aloud sessions with my kids who are currently aged 09 and 11 years old. And every time I sit to read to them I feel I lost so much time and really wish I should have started it earlier because I have come to treasure the value that our reading sessions brings.

      Hello Bogadi, thank you so much! I am really glad you love my website. This tells me I am in the right path and should continue doing what I am doing now. It is a great pleasure to be helpful to all parents through their needs. This way I could recommend them educative tools and toys based on my parenting experience and knowledge and they help me in accepting those recommendations and it is going to be a mutual benefit and a win on both sides.

      Thank you for sharing your own personal experience. I now can imagine how hard it would have been not knowing the importance of reading to our children. I can understand and feel your past experience in regards to not starting reading in the early ages. 

      You’re doing an excellent job by reading and engaging with them later on even though they are 9 and 11 years old. I know that you’re an amazing MOM and doing an extraordinary job in your parenting journey.

      I wish you best of luck!

    Hi there, Meena! This is a great resource! I personally do not have any children but definitely know a lot of new parents. I think reading to children is one of the most critical things during early child development. Definitely need books with vibrant, bright colors and beautiful pictures. Will be sharing this with a couple friends of mine who are new parents. Thanks for compiling this together.

      Hello Mike,

      Thank you very much for the read through and offering a comment. I appreciate the initiative of sharing it with the rest of new parents whom you know. I hope they find this resource as useful and helpful.

      I agree, colored books are a wonderful way to catch the attention of little children for reading.

      Best regards,

    What a great in depth article around reading to your new born baby. In our family we have always been strong believers in reading to our children every night and started when they were infants. One thing you mentioned that we never thought of was teaching them another language!

    I appreciate your knowledge on this subject and will definitely be passing along this site to any of our friends and family that might have a baby or young child in the future.

      Hello Daniel,

      Thank you very much for going through the article and offering a comment. I appreciate your time and very kind insight. 

      I believe anything that are thought to babies in a very early age, could become a life long lesson which lasts forever.

      Thank you for the share and I really appreciate your very kind initiative.

    I love how crisp your website is. You have so much good content. My daughter is 13 now and loves to read. I read to her every night when she was a baby, and continued up until she was in 4th grade. It’s so important to give babies that kind of attention. Keep up the good work.

      Hello Sara,

      Thank you so much for the read through and your kind comment. I really appreciate you. I am glad you liked my website. Thank you so much for visiting and I welcome you to Educational Baby Toys.

      Awesome to share your own experience! It offer valuable experiences to other parents. 

      Reading is by far one of the most valuable ways in which parents could help their children in order to be brought up more intelligent, have higher IQ and be successful in their school studies. This will lead to being even more successful in collage and university studies.  

      If children don’t like reading from an early age, growing up they will be unlikely to read but to watch TV instead. In the contraire, if they get used to reading from an early age; growing up they won’t even look at the TV but instead you will find them reading most of the time.

      It is a pleasure to have heard from you through your comment. I hope to hear from you soon again.

      Best regards,
