Any books are great books for newborns as their tiny eyes and fingers begin to explore our world. In fact, words are where it’s really at, so reading from your favorite books and magazines are also great ways to interact with your baby and get them used to the cadences of the language(s) they will grow up around.
But you can’t exactly stock their adorable little library with the more abstract concept of words. So here are my favorites for newborns that they can enjoy now and some even up to their toddler years. And, as always, shop local and shop bookstores!
Singing slows down language and focuses the attention of babies and children. Essentials for any shelf!
Expose your children now to the beautiful multi-ethnic world we live in.
Black and White
Great for new eyes that can focus more closely on the stark contrast between black and white.
Touch-and-Feel & Lift-the-Flap
May be a bit “loved” if you check them out from the public library, so these are essentials for home libraries.
You Rolled Your Eyes Before But Now You’re All “Awwww!”
