When we decided to have a Gender Reveal Party, we didn't want guests to bring gifts or cards, so we asked everyone to bring their favorite baby book! This turned out to be one of my favorite things because now Cameron has an amazing library of books. Some are now too young for him and some are too old, but we have the best combination that will last him into his teens! It also introduced us to some books that we may not have otherwise picked up for him.
Here are some of our go-to books at the moment:
1. Little Blue Truck and Little Blue Truck Leads the Way
These are Cameron's favorites by far...I love the story they tell and Cam loves the pictures and noises I make...it's a win-win! I also just saw that they have a sticker book (sounds dangerous) and a Spanish version. Way to go! (PS HomeGoods and TJMaxx sell these for great prices!)
2. Dr Seuss' ABC
This is one of my favorites to read because of the rhythm. It was the first book Cam sat through until the end, and I credit it to the rhythm...he was hooked!
3. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
I think that all teachers have this book and for a good reason! This one has a great rhythm, too, and it's super educational. I just love it.
We have many classic books, but we have been reading this one to Cam since he was little. I'm not sure what's attractive to Cam since there's really no rhythm....maybe he likes the pictures of Corduroy!
5. Sandra Boynton Books
She's got it down. Cam loves all of her books, but his two favorites are The Going to Bed Book and Barnyard Dance...again, these have such great rhythms! She also has music, which is so fun!!
Another one of his favorites is Who Hoo Are You? Cameron gets a new book every time he gets shots, so this has added some very age appropriate books to his collection, too! This is the book he got at his 15 month check-up.
What are some of your favorite books?
