That’s quite a claim isn’t it? I’m up for the challenge. Let me know if you have others – this is an evolving list! I’m looking for input. Here we go…
You absolutely need this book.
Pat the Bunny
This book is older than all of us combined. I once witnessed 2 35-year-old men having a full discussion about the book.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
If your adorables don’t put their fingers through the holes, you can forget about Harvard.
A rythmic lilt to soothe babes to sleep.
Dr. Seuss ABC
A great way to introduce the alphabet – it’s fun too.
What baby doesn’t love Peekaboo? It’s a winner.
Bright Baby First Words
When your adorables start to say these words, I don’t care who you are, you melt.
Touch and Feel…
Any of this series. Interactive keeps them interested. Just try to limit yourself to 2 or 3.
Hop on Pop
Dr. Seuss knew what he was doing. My adorables just love this.
That’s Not My…
Any of this series. Have them find the mouse too. Again, limit yourself to 2 or 3.
Ten Little Rubber Ducks
The squeaky duck at the end of the book is worth the price of admission.
DK My First Animal Board Book
Like 5 books in one, this is an excellent travel book as there is a lot to look at.
Hippos Go Beserk
A clever way to introduce counting.
The rhythmic lilt of the prose is really something.
A You’re Adorable
A great way to introduce the alphabet. Easy to memorize.
Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear?
A fun rhythym and great for bedtime.
The Big Hungry Bear
Clever and fun.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Great combination to teach colors and animal names.
Good Night, Gorilla
Consistently, my kids favorite book. The black page with the eyes has my adorables rolling. Really whoop it up for them.
Little Bee (or Little Duck, etc) Finger Puppet Book
The puppet was mind-boggling for my adorables.
Put Me in the Zoo
Colors, descriptive words and a fun story.
This dance is a fun part of bedtime when this book comes out. Get up and get down.
Five (or Ten) Little Ladybugs
Great for counting. Have your adorables hold your finger and point as you count.
Great rhythm and beautiful, happy illustrations.
The book title says it better than I could: “Seven short short bedtime stories for lively little kids”.
If you can find it on the used market (I think it just was too expensive to produce, but it is AWESOME):
Up Goes the Bunny
The adorables were strong enough to push the button at one year and then they didn’t stop.
