Unsure what gift to give a little one? You can never go wrong with books! Many parents of little ones complain about all the toys and “crap” around the house. But you can’t have too many books! Broken out by age group, here are just some of all the incredible books for little ones out there…
Babies & Toddlers
Ten Little Ladybugs ~ A fun rhyming book that also helps babies with counting. The ladybugs are 3D so little ones love touching them as they learn to count.
Little Blue Truck ~ One of the books I can recite by heart because it’s a popular one in my house.
I’d Know You Anywhere My Love ~ I love all of Nancy Tillman’s books, but this one is extra special. It celebrates the uniqueness of all children, and the unconditional love that their parents have for them. Have a box of tissue nearby. (Another favorite by this author is, On the Night You Were Born).
Touch Think Learn: ABC ~ I love books with texture for the little babies!
Llama Llama Wakey-Wake ~ I love all the Llama Llama books!
Dear Zoo ~ Little ones always love the flap books. And with this one they also learn about different animals. This is a good book for a baby or young toddler.
I Love You Through and Through ~ I still tear up when I read this one aloud to one of my kids.
