It's never too early to start reading books with your child - not only does it strengthen your parent-child bond, but it gets your baby started on important language and literacy skills.
It doesn’t matter what you read to your babies: Just hearing any words will get them the foundations for a later vocabulary, and it’s the lap-sitting, not the book choice, that makes for good bonding time.
But, in practice, book choice does matter. Chances are, if reading is a part of your bedtime routine, you’ll have to read some of these stories over and over. To save your sanity as a parent, it’s better if you have a selection of choices with great illustrations, entertaining stories, clever features like flaps you can lift, enriching themes or words that are fun to say out loud (or all of the above).
So here are a few of our favourite picks - why not choose yours and get ready for snuggly story time!
