Baby Books

I know I’ve been a bit lax with the Wednesday Book Club, but to be honest, it’s a bit of a mad house round here of late. So, I’m easing into this by reviewing the books I can’t avoid reading… Baby books πŸ™‚

I have read to both the kids since they were teeny tiny. I think books are sooooooo important for a child’s learning and development. Experts advise reading anything you can to a tiny baby to help them develop their language skills- even if its an excerpt from your own book or magazine. It gets them used to the tone and flow of language, and helps them become familiar with certain words. Tactile books, with lots of texture and things to touch, help to get small babies interacting with books. Of course, books with squeakers, rattles or funny sound buttons help keep them engaged too.

Ladybird books have been around since before I was little. They’re still going strong and I think their Baby Touch Books are great. They cover a wide range of topics from Numbers and Words to Potty Training.

They also have some classic fairy tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man, among others.

Colourful and bright, with cute animations and lovely materials to touch throughout- these books will enthrall young readers.

Usborne Children’s Books are also favourites of ours. They offer touchy feely and noisy books, which allow children to explore their senses through touch and sound. They also have flashcards for bigger kids. Flashcards are brill for toddlers and young children to help them get a handle on reading. We love the Hand Picked New Baby and the That’s Not collections.

There are many, many more books to mention. Any type of text is going to build your baby’s vocabulary and strengthen their conversation skills in the long run. I will list more of my babies’ favourites again next month at some stage. Do let us know what you have been reading to your little ones as well πŸ™‚
