Books are essential in a child's life from the moment they are born. From the second you bring a baby home, start reading to them. Board books are perfect for little ones. They allow your child to explore the book (they will grab it and put it in their mouth because that's how babies explore the world around them). Board books are often repetitive (the same word, phrase, or sentence is repeated and it's perfect for developing brains). If you have a baby coming into your life (your own, a friend, or a family member), stock up on board books. What are your favorites?
