100 books to read with your baby and toddler

August 24, 2009


Most of the books I review on this site are for two-year olds, but I thought maybe I should compile a list of our favorite books from Juliet's baby and toddler years.

Since I didn't start taking Juliet to the library until she was two years old, the books we enjoyed during her first two years are ones that we bought or were given to us as gifts.
 
Below, you will find a list of our Top 100 favorite books from our home library. 

They are listed in alphabetical order according to authors' last names. Hopefully, this makes it easy to print it out and take with you to the library or bookstore the next time you find yourself in search of a good book to read with your baby. 

(I've linked to the posts of books I have already reviewed. I will continue to add links as I review more books.)
