Our Favorite Books for Babies
I love giving my parent friends books as gifts when they are expecting or just had a new baby. A gift basket full of books is always appreciated and is something a little different than your typical registry items. I’m putting one together right now. I have classic books I always include (like Goodnight Moon), but would love to hear from other people what your favorite books for a new baby are? What would you give a new parent?” – ADP1016, Bright Horizons Online Community

Recommended Children’s Books for Babies
Kate, Rookie Mom: Peekaboo books are great. I also loved reading/singing Sandra Boyton books when Liam was a baby.
Jessie: Any of the Sesame Beginnings books!
Allison: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? I used to read this to Arianna as a baby, and as she grew older and started using words she would be able to say some of the colors and animals in the book.
