Shopping Tips

1. Page Durability

Little ones chew and tear most books. Buying a new book to then have it destroyed in 20 minutes can be frustrating!

Make sure the book has thick pages. Board books are your best bet. 

2. Pictures, Lots of Pictures

You want lots and lots of pictures. For newborns, black and white pictures are the best. Don't have too many of those though. Your baby will soon see color and LOVE color. 

3. Variety of Textures

Touch and feel books are MY FAVORITE. They engage our babies AND we learn best when mixing language with motor skills. They may keep the attention of our little ones for longer too. Also, look for books that are made out of different textures. I have a few cloth books. 

4. Size

Buy a variety of sizes to keep it interesting. (There is a concept lesson right there too, big vs small.)  Big books grab the attention of my son, but he loves to read his small books in the car.
