The Future Readers Club recommends these high contrast, simple board books for young babies ages birth to twelve months.
Start reading to your baby from day one. Look for board books with high contrast, simple illustrations. Babies love looking at photos of other babies. Look for books with clear photos of people of different races. Books with no words or only one word per page are a great choice for this age. Books with textures, sturdy flaps, or mirrors engage babies’ senses. Older infants start enjoying very simple stories with one sentence per page.
