You are never too young to enjoy a book! I created this board book gift guide to help parents shop for their own children but also to help anyone simply shopping for a baby present.
Our Board Books for Babies Gift Guide
I put together this simple collection of board books we love to create a gift guide that you can use to shop for your own children and also for baby presents. There should be something for every family in this list!
Board books also lend themselves beautifully to pairing with a themed outfit or stuffed toy or blanket.
Why Buy Books for Babies?
Reading is a wonderful way to bond with your baby, and it’s never too early to start! Research shows that babies can hear you reading aloud to them in the womb. Take advantage of those early baby days – before and after birth – to read your child all of the books that you love!
Why Board Books are Great for Babies
Once your baby arrives, you’ll love the durability of board books. You baby can chew on them, throw them, and step on them without doing much damage.
As your baby grows older, you can learn about your child’s interests by watching them turn the pages. Notice where they linger longer on a page. Pay attention to what they point to. Let them flip back to a favorite page, and read a beloved section of a book over and over to them.
As you build your home library, pay attention to your own interests, too! Fill your home with a combination of books your baby adores and books that you adore. Most libraries have a wonderful board book collection that you can use to explore new reads.
What are your favorite board books for babies that I should add to this gift guide? I’m always looking for new ideas to add to this list.
