Our Favorite Books for Babies and Toddlers

We love books in our house! We’ve been reading to Fox since he was a baby, and one of my favorite parts of motherhood has been watching him experience books with such delight. I also look forward to sharing the joy of books with Mae as she grows, and I hope she will love them, too! We typically read 1-3 books at night before bed and often at other times throughout the day. As Fox has gotten older, it’s been fun to see which books he loves most and watch him interact and recite parts of the stories.

There are so many books out there, and our favorites ebb and flow in seasons, but there are a few that stand out to me right now that I think are worth adding to your child’s collection or selecting as a gift. I’m sharing our top picks by category, and I hope you find a new book to love on this list!

Also, I’d love to know—what are your favorite books for babies and toddlers? Which ones do we need to add to our bookshelves?
