From the moment I found out I was pregnant with Wendy, I looked forward to the moments I could read to/with her. I started early, actually, I started when I was pregnant with her. Then when we brought her home, we started up again. I know that she doesn’t really understand the stories, the words probably sound like gibberish right now, but I know she enjoys it.
Actually, now that she’s 1, I’ve noticed that she gravitates towards her books more than her toys. She enjoys flipping through them, touching the pages, looking at the pictures, and I’ve caught her talking to them a few times. So I’m just going to believe that she is trying to read those books to herself now.
I’ve made a list of some of her favourite books below that I believe would be great to start any baby’s library, plus the stories are so cute and won’t bore you and the pictures will surely entertain your little one.
