Book for the baby

We believe that even the smallest child can and should read. At first, it may be nursery rhymes, choruses, or humorous rhymes. They are read emotionally, with a smile, in parallel, you can demonstrate the characters, talk about them. As soon as the baby starts to sit, you can start flipping through books with bright, colorful drawings. By reading bedtime stories to your children, we calm them down and raise their spirits and teach them to understand other people who are different from us, pass on the experience of past generations, and protect them from mistakes and troubles.
