Books for Infants

First of all, thanks so much for checking out the Becoming Little Readers book lists! Your support means a lot to me, and you’re the reason I’m sharing these things. I hope I can encourage you to read on and inspire the little readers in your own home! If you decide to purchase one of these items, would you do us a favor and purchase from the links in this post? It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but we get a small payment from that to keep things going around here! Your support keeps the book love coming, and it means the world. Thank YOU!


1 2 3 Counting Fold-Out Book – This is SUCH a great book for those very early months. The fold-out feature allows the book to stand alone accordion style. Kit enjoyed when we placed the book in front of him during tummy time to look at, and the contrasting colors always caught his eye. If you have ever had trouble with a fussy baby during tummy time, a high-contrast book is always my first suggestion!


Baby’s Very First Little Library – Great to throw in the diaper bag for travel! These books are small enough for little fingers, but the pages are quite thick and durable. Each page has a bold picture and text with contrasting colors great for keeping little ones engaged.


Animals Fold-Out Book – This is the second fold-out book we got, and the illustrations are more colorful than the numbers book. This has been a great addition to our books for playtime on the floor as Kit gets older.



Quantum Physics for Babies – Simple, contrasting shapes and illustrations. My husband and I come from a Nuclear Engineering background, so this was an obvious choice for baby. Ha! We honestly asked for it for our baby shower as a joke, but it’s been a great book for tummy time over and over. We love it!



Colorful Cloth Book – THE BEST book for little babes to play with! This book has entertained my son in his bouncer so many times while I took a shower or made some much needed coffee. The pages are brightly colored and perfect to put in babies mouth. 😉 Easy to wash, too!


That’s Not My… series – I couldn’t pick just one of these, because we have a few and are picking up more all the time! If you’re looking for a touchy feely, colorful, durable board book…these are PERFECT!
