Reading to your baby is often one of parents' favourite things about parenthood. Here are a few of our most loved books, all available as board books, for anyone seeking some bed time inspiration:
Dear Zoo, Rod Campbell. Charming and iconic, lift the flap trip through the zoo.
That's not my dog/car/zebra etc, Usborne Books. Textured fun with hundreds of different titles for every interest. We love spotting the mouse.
Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown. Calming bedtime story with amazing vintage drawings. A bedtime staple in our house.
Peepo, Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Told from the viewpoint of a baby boy as he learns about his world.
Fox's Socks, Julia Donaldson. Fox's socks is one of a series of lift the flap books featuring woodland animals.
Wheres Spot? Eric Hill. Spot's mum loses spot but finds lots of other animals, under the flaps, before she finally finds spot.
Hairy Maclary from Donaldsons' Dairy, Lynley Dodd. Rhyming story about Hairy Maclary and his doggy pals. The entrance of Scarface Claw is a high spot!
Moo baa la la la, Sandra Boynton. A great collection of silly board books. You'll be amazed how quickly your baby will learn this one!
And of course don't forget that YummiKeys can be a great bedtime teether while you read.
