5 Books: Love and Lollipops

October 18, 2010

Love and Lollipops

The Lovely South African blogger, Georgia, from Love and Lollipops shares her top 5 favorite books for babies and tots today!

Begin Smart What Does Baby Do? Begin Smart What Does Baby Say?

What Does Baby Do? and What Does Baby Say? (BEGIN SMART books) make a super baby shower gift. My little one just loved these and I read them to him from birth!

Baby Einstein: Mirror Me!
Another favourite for the really little ones is baby einstein Mirror Me! by Julie Aigner-Clark. I also read this one from birth and it too became a real hit! This little book has a mirror on every page, so there’s great fun to be had!

Things That Move (Usborne Very First Words)
From about age one, Usborne First Words Things that Move is a real winner for little boys!

Spot Counts From 1 to 10 (Little Spot Board Books)Spot's Favorite Words
Every tot should have some Spot Books by Eric Hill. Little Spot board books, such as Spot counts from 1 to 10 and Spot’s Favorite Words are great for little hands.

Maisy Makes Lemonade Maisy's Bedtime Maisie Tidies Up
Maisy the mouse books by Lucy Cousins are another firm favourite in our home, with my tot requesting these simple, easy to understand stories over and over again! We love Maisy makes lemonadeMaisy’s bedtime and Maisy tidies up.

First Words Flash Card Book (Flash Cards and Book Set)

And last, but not least, I just love (and so does my tot) the Priddy books. All these books have bright real-life well photographed pictures, essential for little minds! My little one cannot get enough of these. I especially love the First Words, which has 20 press-out flashcards. So it’s not only a book, but a great first puzzle!

Thank you, Georgia! I love your suggestions and you've gotten me excited about reading baby books again! I'm especially interested in the Begin Smart Books as I have never read them yet.

Juliet loved the Mirror Me book and we love the Usborne books as well. Maisy was such a huge hit with Juliet when she was a toddler, I can't wait to read those again and a few of the ones we have not yet read!

I can't say enough good things about Priddy books, either! Those were my favorite because of the very reason you mentioned: the bright photography!

Mirror Me has always been popular here, as are Usborne and Priddy books! We never really got into Maisy though... Those caterpillars are too cute!

Totally with you on Roger Priddy books. I always include a couple when I put together a pack of new books as a gift for an expectant friend. My son LOVED thumbing through them in bed between us in the morning as we ate breakfast together as a family. And just this week we took some out when another infant was visiting, and he sat with her showing her each picture and she was riveted.
