Tummy Time Friends (Board book)
Chosen on of CCBC Choices 2021 Annual Best-of-the-Year List of picture books for young children
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies sleep on their backs and play on their tummies to develop crucial muscles while lifting their heads and upper bodies. This lively board book unfolds accordion-style in a floor-standing arc around a tummy-time baby’s head.
Featured in Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s 2021 Best Books for Babies list!
Tummy Time Friends has been selected by Raising Readers—a nonprofit organization of pediatricians and early-reading specialists—to give to every Maine infant at the four-month-old wellness check.
Infants will lift their heads to see the beautiful faces surrounding them, and toddlers will love the photos of diverse babies long after they’ve outgrown tummy time. The simple, gentle verses are perfect for engaging babies and encouraging their verbal skills.
