Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman

This would be a great book for a new parent. It’s also a great book to read aloud to your own child. It is a reassuring message that no matter where they are or what they are doing, no matter whether they have been disappointed or misbehaved, that your love for you child is with them wherever they may go. The illustrations in this beautiful book are fantastic as well. This would be a great book to read all cuddled up with your little one on your lap.

As if you needed a reason to kiss that little one of yours, this book will give you even more reasons…butterfly kisses, Eskimo kisses, slobbery kisses… You won’t be able to read this book without a whole lotta smooching.

Mouse from the If You Give a Mouse books is decorating his Christmas tree. This book is great for the babies, toddlers and preschoolers in your life. It’s a board book that let’s your little ones count the ornaments as Mouse puts them on his tree. They will likely love the surprise ending, too.

Carl’s Christmas by Alexandra Day

November 27, 2011 - 4:53 pm No Comments

Mom and Dad leave Carl (the dog) in charge of the baby while they go to church and then onto Grandma’s. While Mom and Dad are away, Carl and the baby go on an adventure into town where they win a Christmas basket and give to the poor…even Santa stops by while the baby is asleep. Carl books are great picks for little ones as they often come in board book form and they usually don’t have a lot of words. They are great books to look at and talk about the pictures and since there aren’t any words, the story can be a little different every time you “read” it.

How Many Kisses Do You Want Tonight? by Varsha Bajaj

This book is perfect for the toddler/preschooler in your life. It has animals, it rhymes and it has counting. Each animal in the book tells their mom or dad a certain number of kisses they need before they can go to sleep. Then a little girl asks for 100 kisses, one for each curl and a boy tells his mom he wants a million kisses. How many kisses do you think your child will ask for?

Sleep by Roberta Grobel Intrater

I have no idea how many times I have read this book, but it is A LOT. This was a favorite at naptime in our house for a long, long, long time. Children love to look at pictures of other children doing all of the things that they do too…cuddling with their lovey, getting tucked in, getting a kiss from mom and going to sleep. Yay, bedtime! 🙂

Tickle, Tickle by Helen Oxenbury

June 13, 2011 - 12:03 pm No Comments

This is a very short book, but is a little big bigger in size than most board books which might make it easier for your little one to handle. Your child will love the pictures of babies getting dirty, taking a bath, brushing their hair and getting tickled. It also rhymes and might lead to a little tickle time of your own.

If Kisses Were Colors by Janet Lawler

This book is beautifully illustrated and beautifully written…a combo that is hard to pass up. On top of all that, your child will inevitably get lots of extra kisses each time you read this book to them.

If kisses were pebbles, your beach would be lined
with stone by the million, of all shapes and kinds.
If kisses were comets, the sky would be bright
with flashes of fire that streak through the night.

Oh, how I wish I would have known about this book when my boys were younger. They would have LOVED it! Not only does it include animals sounds and have little cut out parts so children can guess what picture is coming next, but it rhymes and it has repetition…they would have loved it as I am sure your little one will, too.

Smile! by Roberta Grobel Intrater

Babies love to look at pictures of other babies, especially pictures of other babies smiling. When our youngest was a baby, I cut out a bunch of pictures from parenting magazines of babies smiling and taped them to the wall next to where I changed his diapers so he could look over and see all of those smiling babies. This book is just like that, only you can take it with you and you don’t have to be in the middle of a diaper change to enjoy it.
