What to Read to Babies

When parents are reading to them, babies are learning, even when they don’t understand all the words. Some research indicates that both quality and quantity of the reading matter. So what kinds of books should you read?

Babies enjoy books with photos of faces and daily life, high contract pictures, and simple language. Repetition, rhymes, lullabies and songs, and animal sounds are appealing. As they get older, babies also enjoy interacting with board books they can hold (and maybe chew) and simple lift-the-flap or touch and feel books.
