The first rendition of the 25 Best Board Books was a huge hit, and I asked Contributing Writer Sarah Farthing to revise the list with her favorites for our National Read Across America Week.
I loved to see these new titles on her list, and also see old friends that are just purely classics – probably on every Board Book Best of list there is.
So here we go….
Mommy Hugs and Daddy Kisses
A boxed set of these 2 fabulous cuddly books
Mama’s Right Here
Sweet story about the enduring and permanent love of Mamas.
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.
You absolutely need this book.
Pat the Bunny
I once witnessed 2 35-year-old men having a full-blown discussion about this book.
Let’s Be Happy
A book about being happy and helpful – what could be better?
On the Night You Were Born
Special, special, and your adorable will feel so too.
I Love You Through and Through
The title says it all; cuddling necessary.

Not your average Seuss: colors and emotions paired together.
Reading together and sweet kisses. Do you need more?
The singsong of this book is gorgeous. Vivid illustrations.
Just plain old silly!
