Introducing SmartContrast Montessori Cards: Hello, Animals**, a box set of 20 large-size high-contrast art cards perfect for your child's development.**
Studies show that babies see high-contrast shapes and patterns from the very first days of life, and our large (6" x 8"), contrasting art cards will aid your baby in the development of visual-spatial skills and in recognizing new objects.
Focusing on contrasting images has a positive impact on developing brains, and since infants learn shapes and colors gradually, our art cards are designed for three levels of development so parents can use them at their baby's own pace. Our stage one cards present babies with black-and-white animals and patterns that are perfect for newborns up to 6 months. After black and white, babies 6 to 12 months old begin to recognize yellow and red, and the cards in stage two feature these colors to help babies focus on their new discoveries. And finally, older babies 12 to 16 months can recognize blue, orange, and green, and these colors are featured in the animals, shapes, and patterns in the stage three cards that will get babies ready to continue their natural development.
Our SmartContrast Montessori Cards: Hello, Animals have been developed by the same creative team and artists behind our best-selling series of high-contrast books: Hello, Baby Animals; Hello, Garden Bugs; Hello, Ocean Friends; and Hello, My World, which have more than 180,000 copies in print and thousands of five-star reviews by parents who purchased online and in brick-and-mortar stores.
