Best Books for Baby’s Bookshelf

Best books for Baby's Bookshelf as found on www.queenofthelandoftwigsnberries.com

One of my favorite thing to do with my boys is cuddling up and reading together for hours.  It is something we have been doing ever since they were born, and it is such a great way to not just slow down and focus on the simple and important things in life, but also a way to start my little boys learning the moment we came home from the hospital.  Since so many people struggle with figuring out what books to introduce their kids to, I am sharing my expertise not just as a mom but also as a Reading Specialist.  First up, must have books for baby’s bookshelf.

    Wow what a terrific list! I remember some of these from when my own kids were children so long ago. Thanks for the reminder I’ve been looking for more books to add to the twins growing collection and these are all perfect additions!

    This is such a fun list. I think I could talk kids’ books for a very long time. I am happy to see that the list includes so many books we love – especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

      I find it to hard to create a reading nook because there are so many different bookshelves that I absolutely LOVE. Decisions, decisions…

    Adorable post. I second all these choices. They were all ours – nice and worn now that the babes are a tad more stretched out and want of lengthier stories! We are book lovers and there is reading during the day and definitely a quiet lovely cuddling period every night!
