Sports, High Contrast
A golfer swings her club. Look at the ball fly! A player gears up to kick a soccer ball soaring toward him. A basketball player's open - here comes the ball! Making connections between images on a page and the real world is an important building block for your baby's communication skills―and this charming introduction to sports in bold, basic patterns, provides a great high-contrast experience for young developing eyes. As newborns' vision is not developed enough to recognize colors, the sharp contrast of high-contrast patterns and illustration allows their eyes to differentiate between the images on a page. Sure to grab little ones' attention!
