First word books are good because they provide a lot of images for you to discuss with your baby. You don't have to "read" them because it's so easy to just talk about the images.
A Happy Home: A First Words Book (Boxer Concept Series)
I love the illustrations in this one.
My Little Animal Book (My Little Books)
This is the book for which this blog was named! (See the silly eagle on the bottom right-hand corner?) It was Juliet's first favorite book. We love it.
My Big Truck Book (My Big Board Books)
We bought this after the truck obsession kicked in.
My First Signs
I love this baby sign language books. Juliet learned several signs such as milk, kitty, and mommy from this book.
The choices in this category are unending--what are your favorites?
