We love books! I started reading to my son when I was pregnant, and now we read them every day. Storytime is part of our bedtime routine, and we love exploring new worlds through the pages.
It’s never too early to start reading to your little ones. Newborn babies love black and white picture books with baby faces and nature. Jayden loves turning the pages and checking out what’s behind the flaps. (He occasionally bites on the edges of some of the classics too.)
Since our collection is still growing, I wanted to know what YOUR favorite baby books are. These are some of the top baby books, as recommended by you. You can also find these selections in my Amazon Shop. (I’ve included the English and Spanish versions.)
