Baby Books

by Angella Meanix

 

We often get asked, "what is a good book for a baby?" ... and the answer is -- any children's book!  It depends what your goal is. 

Children listen and follow along with whatever kind of story you're reading them.  Of course, rhythm and cadence help keep attention.  As will a simple storyline.
