Good First Books for Baby

With so many books out there, it's hard to know which ones to buy.  Of course, you can always just check out whatever you want at your local library, but there are some classics {and just plain old good ones not yet rendered "classics" in my humble opinion!} that you always want to have for keeps...sitting on your child's bookshelf at home, ready to read time and time again.

So I have just a few listed below that I think are fabulous for first books...a couple have a Spring theme, too, so they'd make a great addition to your kiddo's Easter basket this year, not to mention great baby shower gifts, too.

In no particular order, I would recommend "Barnyard Dance," "In My Tree," "What Makes a Rainbow?" and "Haiku Baby."

Barnyard Dance is made to read as more of a rhythmic song....it will keep you bopping and has rhyming, too.  Great for learning about animals and the sounds they make, as well.

In My Tree is a finger puppet book.  It's short and sweet, and baby LOVES watching the owl {that is, your finger!} move.  This is probably Baby K's favorite book at our house {she's 11 months old currently}.

Haiku Baby is a beautiful book that takes a bird through the seasons.  It's actually poetry, though you'd never really know it...and neither would baby.  Love this peaceful, calming book.

What Makes A Rainbow? is such a great find for learning colors.  It was definitely one of my son's favorites when he was about 1 to 2 years old.  It has actual ribbons that show up on each page, along with a pop-up rainbow and sun at the end.  Really love this one.

So, do you have a favorite baby book?  Please let us know!  I always love to find a fabulous baby book to pair with some of my bibs and burp cloths as a baby gift.

Happy Reading, and Happy Spring!
