Great Books for Babies
Babies love books that are simple, colorful and fun. Books featuring learning body parts, songs, animals, making fun noises and nursery rhymes are especially popular.

Toddler Favorites
Toddlers are able to listen longer than babies can to a story. They also love to be interactive with a book! You don't need to follow the actual story. Feel free to talk about whatever interests your child if they point to something on a page.
