I love kids’ books. So very much. We have read at least 4,497 books in our family (give or take) but there are always a few that are favorites. So, here are some of those favorites for the littlest kids:
by DK Publishing
We actually wore out our copy of this book. Babies are naturally drawn to human faces. This book features clear, simple pictures of babies expressing different emotions and engaging in various activities. A great way to introduce a baby to books.
My First ABC Board Book
by Jane Bunting
Love this and all the board books like it by DK Publishing. Beautiful pictures, vibrant colors, totally engaging for infants and toddlers.
Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Eric Carle
Unique artwork and a great story punctuated by repeated phrases keeps the little ones’ attention. And this is just the beginning. All of Eric Carle’s books are great. Available as board books for the tiniest hands.
by Chris Gilvan-Cartwright
A beautifully drawn animal habitat graces each page. The animals are hidden, with little doors revealing a foot, a stripe, a tail, with questions like “who has a stripey coat?”. When you’re ready to guess what the animal is, the picture pulls up out of the page’s pocket, revealing the whole animal. Charming.
My Many Colored Days
Love LOVE this little book that puts colors and sounds around our many varied emotions. Good for toddlers because it’s a colorful board book, but also good content for slightly older kids.
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Seriously. Every family has to have this one. No better bedtime book.
