favorite books

Carter loves books!  We still read all board books because a single paper page wouldn't stand a chance against Carter.  I rotate books for the seaons and holidays and you can typically find books scattered everywhere in his room.

When he was younger he only had the attention span for touch and feel books or lift the flap books with few words.  But as he's gotten older he appreciates more words and they don't have to be interactive (although he still likes those too!)

Here are some of our favorite books:

Time for Bed by Mem Fox- Such a sweet bedtime story- it rhymes and has pictures of all different animals going to sleep.  We have the padded board book and I love it!

Wherever You Are, My Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman- We just put this board book in the mix!  I love it, especially because this was the reading we did for Carter's blessing.  

My First ABC Book- This has been one of Carter's favorites for  many months.  He now points and says the names of the objects on the pages.  It's a great way for him to learn the names of many things and there are photographs, not drawings. 

Bright Baby Board Books- We have First Words, 2 truck books and Fall.  They are great because of the simple pages and photographs.  Carter loves them and points to the pictures and practices saying some the words too!  Based on the books we have, I would totally get other books in this series too.

Llama Llama Books- I love Llama Llama Nighty Night.  It's simple and quick and love the rhyming.  We also have Wakey Wake, Hoppity Hop, and Zippity Zoom.

Baby Touch and Feel Books- We have a few of these.  Carter loved these when he was a little younger, but still reads them sometimes too.

Lift the Flap Books by Sandra Magsamen- We have Peek a Boo I Love You, Merry Christmas Little One and I love You Little Pumpkin.  Carter loves lifting the flaps!  You've got to have some holiday books in the mix!

Karen Katz Lift the Flap Books-  We have a few of these and Carter loves lifting the flaps and they're seasonal too!
