Linking up with The Children’s Bookshelf for fun posts on children’s books!
Board books are the best way to get a baby or toddler interested in reading and pictures; they have simple messages, (usually) rhyming language, and great illustrations. Plus, board books are usually the number choice for a teething child to gnaw on. Here is our list of favorites that we started with during infant bath time all the way to rambunctious toddler naptime.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Eric Carle has such a unique perception in his books, but they tapped right into a child’s imagination. This one has been cracking us up, and I love the gradual movement from what the caterpillar eats. It’s a lovely story, too.
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney. Oh Llama, he is such a realistic character. As an infant, my child love the melody of the rhyme, and, now that he’s understanding the story a bit more, he loves the characters. This one is a tongue twister, but so much fun!
