Read Aloud! 9 amazing books to read to your baby during pregnancy!

Books to read during pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the most important phase in a women’s life. It is said a baby’s neural system starts developing as early as the twenty-sixth week of pregnancy. During this time, you can train your baby’s brain to recognise words and sounds. Reading aloud and introducing your baby to music and words can increase your baby’s intelligence and acclimate your baby to your voice. Even though your baby may not understand the meaning of the words but your baby can surely pick up on the tone of the sentences and learn to respond to them.

Babies have a short attention span so it is always better to divide your reading session into small yet informative segments. Selection of lighthearted, soothing material full of humor and fun would be the best way to entertain you and your baby.
