HTML for Babies [BOOK]

If this is not the epitome of our era, in which kids are exposed earlier and earlier to various technological innovations, I’m not sure what is.

A great idea by Web designer John Vanden-Heuvel from CodeBabies.

This visually simple, yet stunning book is designed for the “children’s books” section of retailers, but I’m sure geek parents might have more fun with the book than the kids would (not that babies would’t love playing with the colorful letters of the book). If only Tim Berners-Lee had one of these when he was 6 months old…

HTML for Babies can be found on Amazon.

Book Description

It’s never too early to be standards compliant! Show your little ones HTML markup code along with letter forms to get them started on the visual patterns and symbols that make up the essential building blocks of the Web. The first in a three-volume set, originally designed by a NYC Web Designer for his baby, this beautiful book is a fun and colorful introduction to the world of web design for babies.
I’ve guaranteed my copy of HTML for Babies, and eagerly await the release of CSS for Infants, Java for Toddlers… oh well…
