Top 3 Must Have Books for Your Baby or Toddler

Reading is one of the most important things you will do with your baby or toddler. Make reading to your baby or toddler a part of your daily routine whether it be in the afternoon before naptime or during late evening before bedtime.

I have two children and reading is a very important part of our daily routine. Reading builds and helps develop your baby and toddler's brain. Each day we choose a couple books and settle down to read them. There are three must have books for your baby or toddler's mini library or bookshelf.

1.) The first book I recommend for your baby or toddler's bookshelf is GoodNight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. You can buy this book new almost anywhere for fewer than eight dollars and it comes in hardback or a board book. GoodNight Moon is a bedtime story sure to get your child to sleep easier. It features a cuddly little rabbit who wants to name everything in his room to avoid going to sleep. The pages are colorful and the words are delightful!

2.) The second book I recommend for your baby or toddler's bookshelf is My First Words Book. You can buy any variation of this book as a board book. You can buy this book for fewer than six dollars. The My First Words Book is filled with everyday objects including cute animals, food, and shapes! It will greatly increase your child's vocabulary. All babies and toddlers that I know enjoy this book!

3.) The third book I recommend for your baby or toddler's bookshelf is Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss. I recommend the board book and you can get one for fewer than five dollars. Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? is a fun book for babies and toddlers. Babies and toddlers will want to hear the wonderful rhythmic sounds over and over! Your child will learn all sorts of sounds from horse's feet to thunder to a whisper!
