Reading to your baby is one of the best things you can do for them. Here are 20 of our family’s favorite Board Books for Babies.
We started reading to our children at a very young age. With my love for books, our home was full of all kinds of them before they were even born. I quickly learned that babies NEED board books. It is as important for them to touch and feel (and ok, chew on) books as it is for them to hear the stories and see the pictures. While I could name you hundreds and hundreds of fabulous books for kids, here are our top 20 favorite board books for babies that no home library is complete without!
