We have been enjoying our board books around here lately! Reading to Henry has started to get even more fun because he actually looks at the pictures and reaches out to grab the book. Board books are great because they cannot rip. They are also the perfect size for Henry to hold on to.
Here are some of our favorite board books:
- Little Blue Truck by
Little Blue is such a fun book to read out loud, and the illustrations are wonderful. We often read this one a few times in a row!
- Dr. Seuss’s ABC by none other than Dr. Seuss
We love practicing the alphabet with the silly sounds of Dr. Seuss’s. We of course add Henry’s name to the “H” page!
- Jamberry by Bruce Degen
The repetition and alliteration in this book make it a blast to read. I get pages from this book stuck in my head and catch myself singing them throughout the day. My favorite is, “buried in berries what a jam jamboree!”
- Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton
This book is hilarious and silly! The brightly colored illustrations really catch Henry’s eye.
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
I remember my mom reading this book to me when I was little. Eric Carle’s illustrations are truly beautiful. This book helps us practice counting (it’s never too early to start 🙂 )
