Apart from enjoying feeling her baby kick in her womb, preggo actress Anne Curtis is also currently enjoying reading to her baby.
"New reading material for my little bub in my tum," she wrote on her Instagram Stories last January 7, 2020, with a photo of the book, Oh, Baby, The Places You'll Go! It's a pregnancy/baby book by American children's book author and illustrator Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel, in real life).
"She can really hear mine and her papa's voice now," Anne added.
Babies in the womb babies start to hear their mom's heartbeat, voice, and music by Week 20 of the pregnancy. The actress and TV host is about 32 weeks along the family way, so she and Erwan Heussaff's baby girl already knows (and loves!) hearing their voices.
Dr. Seuss wrote over 60 children's books. He is famous for the titles Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax, Horton Hears A Who, and more. Not all people know about Oh, Baby, The Places You'll Go! Many people confuse it with the book Oh, The Places You'll Go!, another one of his famous children's titles.
According to Dr. Seuss's wife, Audrey Geisel, her husband was delighted to discover that researchers used his book, The Cat in The Hat, to check how babies hear while in the womb.
"The researchers found increased uterine activity during the reading," Audrey wrote in the foreword for the book. The results of the study showed that babies continue to respond to the book when it was read to them after delivery. The little ones somehow remember hearing the story before.

Dr. Seuss enjoyed his bit of involvement in the prenatal research, Audrey added.
Oh, Baby, The Places You'll Go was first published in 1997 posthumously. It was adapted by Tish Rabe from the works of Dr. Seuss, who passed away in 1991. It showcases all the creatures and adventures babies will get to meet and experience once they are born.
Its last lines read:
It's a scrumptious world and it's ready to greet you And as for myself... well... I can't wait to meet you!'
"Reading these last two pages makes me tear up," Anne shared. Only less than ten weeks to go before she and Erwan will meet their daughter!
