Baby Books

by Angella Meanix


We often get asked, "what is a good book for a baby?" ... and the answer is -- any children's book!  It depends what your goal is. 

Children listen and follow along with whatever kind of story you're reading them.  Of course, rhythm and cadence help keep attention.  As will a simple storyline.

“Warbler, if you fly above this tomb sing him your sweetest song.”

This isn't a new suggestion. It was suggested a while ago in the summer --just after we went into quarantine. I couldn't put this book down.  It struck all the right cords. I've resurfaced my suggestion because it is out in paperback!  Enjoy!  BUY THE BOOK.
