One of the best things new parents can do for their baby is to start up a home library for their child. Not only will this introduce a love for reading at a young age, but it will also expose the child to many other benefits. If you’re looking for types of books to get for your baby, then check out our list below!

 

1. Letters, Numbers, Shapes, Colors, Etc.

Books are great for learning, so having books that will introduce the alphabet, counting, different shapes and colors, and more is a great start. Some great examples are ABC by Dr. Seuss and Numbers, Colors, Shapes by Roger Priddy.

2. Books With Repetition

Repetition books are something that will remain useful, as your baby grows older. Books that have repeating words or phrases help children learn a multitude of words, which will be helpful as they start learning to talk themselves. Try Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle.

4. Cloth Books

A cloth book usually isn’t for reading, but they can still be very important for a baby to have. While these books may not have words written on them, they do often have squeakers or something crinkly in them, which can help your baby develop their senses. Cloth books are great for on the go, and most of them are machine washable as well. Peek-a-Boo Forest by Lamaze is a best-selling cloth book, so be sure to check it out!

6. Bedtime Books

Reading before bedtime is an awesome habit to get into, not just for your baby, but also as a parent. Having books just about bedtime is great because they center around the act of getting a good night’s sleep and help establish a routine. It’s Time to Sleep by Roger Priddy is a great kid’s book that shows sleepytime as a fun and exciting end to their day.
