Lowenna 2 months.mp4


In this video, mum Mel is reading to daughter Lowenna when she is just 8 weeks old. By holding the book up close to Lowenna, Mel is ensuring the high contrast images are within Lowenna's visual range. 

Mel names the animals as she brings them into Lowenna's line of sight and even makes animal noises. Reading to Lowenna at this age allows her to become familiar with her mum's voice and is helping to develop her aural and visual senses.
