It’s never too early to read to your baby. Even before they can focus on the pictures, they are listening to the rhythm and cadence of your voice. Reading promotes bonding between baby and caregiver and demonstrates that books are to be enjoyed. Board books are great because they are sturdy and we want babies to be able to hold, pat, and play with books without our being nervous about ripped and soggy pages. Here are a few recommendations for baby’s first books.
