Your baby is growing more alert and engaged, making now the perfect time to introduce and explore more books together.
There are lots of books out there! When figuring out what to read with your baby, ask around for book recommendations from other parents, your pediatrician, or your local library – they can be great sources for helpful tips.
As you make your selections, consider choosing these types of books for your baby:
Touch and feel books Your baby will love to touch and discover the images in these types of books.
Board books Chunky, durable books that your baby can easily grab and play with are best.
Flap books Your baby will love opening and closing flaps as you read together. It’s like a game of “peek-a-boo” in a book!
