Like all parents, you want your baby to have the very best start in life, which means providing your baby with the tools they need to develop and grow. Books should be an essential part of your child’s life, even from being a baby. Stroller books are particularly great as they keep your baby occupied on your travels whilst providing stimulation and fun.
Studies show exposing babies to books from an early age can kick-start their brain development and enhance cognitive skills. In fact, experts believe introducing books to babies within the first year is crucial to your baby’s intellectual and emotional growth.
Benefits Of Baby Reading In Stroller
The stroller is the perfect place for your baby to begin what will hopefully become a lifelong love of books. Your stroller should be a place of ultimate comfort and safety, where your baby can relax on your travels.
The JUNIORJONES stroller range, for example, features Tru-Ride 2 technology, which minimises disturbance from bumps, kerbs and steps and enables your baby to be comfortable when you’re on the move. Not just innovative in looks and materials – every detail of the JUNIORJONES strollers has been considered to maximise your baby’s comfort and safety, right down to the ergonomic bumper bar for your baby to hold on to.
By attaching baby books to your stroller’s bumper bar, your baby will be encouraged to reach out and grasp the books. This will improve grasping skills and fine motor skills. Similarly, books with bright colours and a variety of textures will provide an on-the-go sensory experience and will encourage your baby to focus their eyes.
