I just have to say, we think Richard Scarry books are THE BEST for teaching observation skills.
Little ones gain ability to sit and absorb detail in the old-fashioned way that lights up a child’s brain as they make connections in the world around them.
So much better to start them out with great books in hand than devices that don’t equate to actual processed knowledge!
Studies show that children with as little as two hours of screen time daily got lower scores on tests focused on thinking and language skills.
I attribute these books to our son’s early love of learning that has never waned. Today, he is a pilot for a major airline at 27.
