    Faves from the old blog

    Week One:

    Anything by Eric Carle or Sandra Boynton

    Where is Maisy

    Where’s my Baby

    Who said Moo

    Dear Zoo

    Week Two:

    Open the Barn Door by Christopher Santoro

    This is a small, chunky flap book that little hands can handle, and babies love to hear, (and make,) the farm animal sounds.

    Week Three:

    Splash by Flora McDonnell

    Another charming book about a clever little baby elephant.

    Week Four:

    Baby Beluga by Raffi

    If you don’t know the Baby Beluga song, you should download it. Kids love it, and this boardbook has sweet illustrations.

    Week Five:

    The Wheels on the Bus by Raffi

    Another great Raffi song brought to life through a board-book. Both Crazybaby and Pip love this one because the illustrations are hugely entertaining.

    Week Six:

    Where is Baby’s Belly-Button by Karen Katz

    Babies love lift-the-flap books, and Katz’s books have huge flaps and appealing pictures. Crazybaby started enjoying them at about 6 months and still likes them at 15 months.

    Week Seven:

    Time for Bed by Mem Fox and Jane Dyer

    This is a classic bedtime board-book for babies. I love reading text that rhymes and this verse is particularly lovely. Mem Fox writes about animals going to bed and Jane Dyer tenderly illustrates animal mums tucking-in their babies for the night.

    Week Eight:(missed this week)

    Week Nine:

    Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathman

    Another classic book that has stood the test of time. Very little text and very interesting illustrations that provide a lot of opportunity for discussion. This is a great book for babies who don’t have the attention span for books with more text, and it’s funny too!

    Week Ten:

    123, Maisy byLucy Cousins

    This is a visually appealing counting book for kids. The pages foldout and are a bit complicated for young babies, but kids over a year old can handle it. I’m not sure if it’s technically considered a board book because the pages are made out of heavy card instead of board, but our girls both love them.
