Types of books for babies
- Board books-these are great because they are easy to read and have great pictures. They can also handle being dropped as your baby plays with them.
- Crinkle books-this is another type of book that makes noise as you move or touch the pages.
- Touch and feel books-these let baby get to feel different textures and keeps them engaged longer.
The best books for babies are board books, crinkle books, and touch and feel books. Each of them help keep baby engaged and help with their development.
You can start reading even as they are newborns. It's a great activity to bond with baby and as they get older they will want to keep reading.
You can create a bedtime routine of reading before you put them down in the crib. Also, if you have a fun crinkle book, these are great for tummy time!
