Having a newborn baby can be challenging, tiring and lets just be honest - a bit chaotic. Building your baby's first library of books can be just one of many ways to not only help new parents to relax but it's no secret that reading is one of the best things you can do for your baby. Reading to your little one—even when a newborn—stimulates brain development and helps to strengthen the parent-child bond. Reading helps babies develop language skills and make sense of the world around them.
Creating your baby's first library can be a little challenging, so we've created the Bazzle Baby must read buying guide featuring 5 of our favorites:
On the Night You Were Born
Book by Nancy Tillman
On the night you were born you brought wonder and magic to the world. This book is a great first book for your baby and is story that is meant to stay with your child through all of the years. This book makes the perfect baby shower gift!
Book by Rod Campbell
Babies will love to see you lift the flaps and see which animal will be coming home as the new family pet!
Book by Margaret Wise Brown
Imagine just finishing your nighttime feeding and reading a book sure to calm baby down. Loved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.
Book by Peter Linenthal
Newborns only see black, white, and gray at first, which makes these high-contrast, black-and-white illustrations all the more engaging to young eyes.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Book by Eric Carle
This book takes the prize as the Bazzle Baby team's favorite pick across the board and in 2019, it will be the 50th Anniversary that this book has been released. It's easy to see why it has endured, because it combines so many things that babies love: counting, cute animals, and food.
