Welcome to my Blog. A place that encourages Zen with a little mix of Fiesty!

Baby's First Library

I believe there is just something so soothing and connecting about reading. It can transport you to another place and time or it can educate you on other cultures and ways of living. You can get lost for a few days or a few hours. For this reason I wrote this post.

In no particular order these are some books I suggest should be part of a new baby’s library.

I had many of these as I started my daughter’s library before she was born. I’m an avid reader so I couldn’t even imagine not having books as part of my child’s life, let alone her own treasure of books.

Today many children have Tablets and other gadgets that they use as learning tools and entertainment but I feel that an early start for the love of an actual book never hurts.

Here are my suggestions:
-Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
-Hush, Little Baby by Brian Pinkney
-Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow
-In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming
-Baby Dance (Harper Growing Tree) by Ann Taylor
-Are you My Mother? By P.D. Eastman
-Peek-a-boo! By Roberta Grobel
-Time to get Dressed! By Elivia Savadier
-Wheels on the Bus by Raffi
-Curious George books by Margret Rey & H.A. Rey
-Disney Classics series by Golden Books
-Dr. Suess
-Classic Winnie the Pooh books by A.A. Milne & Ernest H. Shepard
-Disney Baby Einstein 12 book Library series by Editors of Publications International Ltd.
-Golden Books variety of The Three Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood, Goldie Locks etc…

Your selection can vary and will. The additions will be loads of fun once your child can pick for themselves and read on their own. My daughter’s library today ranges from some of her childhood classics to Harry Potter to Hemingway and Dickens.

Reading is fundamental and fun!!!! Start early and enjoy. Build bonds and precious memories.
