Observe the child looking at pictures of objects or people.
Provide a photograph of an object, such as a chair or toy and a photograph of a person. Hold them up at the same time for the infant to look at.
The infant stares longer at the picture of the person.
Infants can now discern details in pictures and recognize familiar people and objects in their lives. Early childhood educators and parents can introduce photos of people and familiar objects in board books.
