Britannica’s Baby Encyclopedia

Publisher: Britannica Books

A colourful, fun introduction to the world around us. Divided into eight sections – our world, animals, plants, body, food, machines, art & music, shapes & numbers – and full of large, bright illustrations, this is a delight. Babies are constantly learning, especially from 0–3, and this book will help build vocabulary and an understanding of early learning concepts.

The large format and sturdy card pages means this is perfect for sharing and for poring over together. Plus it lies flat for tummy time! Young children will love pointing to the pictures and repeating the animal noises and sound effects. The cast of characters is diverse and inclusive – every child should see themselves represented.

Written and designed with care to ensure there are chances to talk about each element, this has been created with a child development consultant, Dr Amanda Gummer. It contains a surprising amount of information – not just a word and a picture every time – and it manages to strike the balance between accessible (and baby-friendly) and informative. The illustrations by Hanako Clulow are gorgeously attractive. A brilliant book for baby and carer alike to enjoy.
