The best board books for babies

It’s important to read to your kids, even when they are babies! There are so many good books to read to your baby, but I love board books because they are just the right length for short attention spans and the thick pages are easier  to turn. This is a list of the best board books for babies.

You might think that babies are too young to understand books, but babies that hear more words in their infancy have a better vocabulary as a toddler and preschooler. It is also a great way to cuddle and bond and by adding a books into your routine your baby will learn that reading is special and something to look forward to. Check out these tips for reading to your kids to help make things a little easier.

Reading to babies can be tricky sometimes. You might find they are too wiggly and don’t want to sit for a book or they just want to grab the book out of your hands and eat it! (Check out these tips for reading to kids.) I have found that it has been easier to read to my babies right after they have a full tummy and are tired, so right before nap time and bedtime. The more you read to them the more they will love it and hopefully will start bringing you books any time of the day to read.

There are so many books you can read to babies (check out our 50 favorite picture books here), but board books are nice because they are usually condensed and just the right length for their short attention spans. The pages are also fat and easier for them to turn. They also double as a nice chew toy. 😉 Board books aren’t just for babies either, Sandra Boynton books are still my Kindergartener’s favorite books.
