Board books are the perfect format for introducing babies and young toddlers to the wonderful world of reading. They are sturdy enough to endure being chewed or sucked on and the thicker pages are easier for little hands to turn without tearing.
There are many delightful and educational board books to choose from, but here are three that both my daughters and I enjoyed.
- Pat the Bunny (Touch and Feel Book).
- Where’s Spot?
Someone gave me this sweet, simple book at a baby shower for my older daughter and we literally wore it out! I ended up buying a new one for our second daughter.
I first read this book to a friend’s daughter before I even had children. She loved it so much that I knew my own children would like it as well. Lifting the flaps and looking for the mischievous dog leads to a fun ending!
- Baby Faces
I’ve heard it said that babies enjoy looking at other babies’ faces and that certainly proved true for my girls when it came to this book. We enjoyed studying the expressions on each child’s face and talking about what they might be thinking.
What board books have your children enjoyed? I am always adding new titles to my list of favorites.
