Your baby’s first library!
We’ve got a curated selection of classics and contemporary books to start your little one’s library.
- Orange Pear Apple Bear by Emily Gravett
There are four words repeated in this board book, and they are orange, pear, apple and bear. It takes a genius to make a whole book with it!
- Where’s Spot by Eric Hill
A much-loved classic, we recommend the lift-the-flap version – it’s great to use when Junior learns to say No – and that will happen sooner than you know it!
- Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
Comes in a lift-the-flap board book version that’s guaranteed to please your toddler. It’s simple yet tells a perfect story!
- A Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
With an interesting illustration stlye, Carle creates a story that makes it fun to turn, teach numbers, days of the week, colors, lifecycle of the butterfly – all of this in one gorgeous book! This one’s a keeper.
- Peepo! by Janet and Allan Ahlberg
Another baby book that’s perfect, with words that are the right size and sound to read to a little one. A review says, no home should be without one. We agree!
- The Baby Touch series including Peekaboo, Play Book and Flip-Flap book
They are bright and colorful with textures and mirrors. Very attractive for babies and great for the adult to engage them with. Each page has a few assorted things to turn the baby’s attention too. As an introduction to books, this is a fabulous set.
- Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
She tells a whole story with one word featuring in it – goodnight! And it never fails to make one smile and chuckle. Perfect for that bedtime cuddle and read!
- Here we are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers
As parents, revisiting the world of children’s books always throws up a few surprises. It allows you to enjoy children’s books once again. Oliver Jeffers’ books tend to do that often. But this one is special because he wrote it for his son, about our world. Couldn’t have done it better!
- I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
You know that the author wasn’t forgetting about you – the parent – when he wrote this book. It’s cheeky and fabulously original! If you enjoy a wicked sense of humor, pick this one for your baby’s library.
