BOOKS

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." Charles W Eliot (1834-1926) President of Harvard University, USA for 40 years.

Great visual list of book suggestions for babies
and children from 1 to 6
Early Childhood Bookstore
.................................................................

Great reads for the early years.
These are books that I have found that children under 5 love.
Of course this is a wide age range so I have classified some by age recommendation. 
Also keep in mind that if a child does not seem to like books at all maybe you have not found the right book yet. Try a book with real photographs and stop reading those fantasy books that seem to proliferate in early childhood. (Just a well meant suggestion)

These touch and feel books have great textures loved by babies as soon as they can grasp. This series of books by Fiona Watt encourages interactive play. As each page is turned, a different texture is waiting to be discovered. Bright and simple illustrations add to each title's appeal.
