Some books are good for 1-year-olds. Some books are good for older children. Some books are good for kids. A great way to help your child learn is with books that are fun and exciting. 

Parents need to have a nice selection of books that they can use to help their children in learning. Before you can teach your little one to read, you must first teach them to love books.

This is a great way to help your child develop a love for reading. Books are an excellent way to expose your child to new concepts and ideas. Most popular baby books are an ideal gift for infants for a variety of reasons.

The image shows a 1-year-old child browsing books on a bookshelf. The child has blond hair and is wearing a white shirt. The bookshelf is filled with a colorful array of books that capture the joy of reading and learning from an early age.
From 0 to 3 months, based on the baby’s physiological basis, black-and-white cards with strong contrast, simple structure, and sharp outlines are the first choice for reading. 

It is not only beneficial to the child’s visual development but also to the intimate interaction between you and the child. Can pull into the parent-child relationship.

Look, Look! by Peter Linenthal

Combining the abilities of babies from 4 to 6 months, we recommend the color card and cloth book series. 

The color card has bright colors and clear outlines. It is very attractive to babies who can just distinguish colors and is beneficial to the baby's visual development. 

Studies have shown that 83% of the information entering the brain is through vision, and good visual stimulation can promote the development of the brain.

God Made You (Cloth Books) by Lori C. Froeb

God Made You (Cloth Books) by Lori C. Froeb

A cloth book, as the name suggests, is a book made of cloth, colorful, and some are even designed to make a sound to attract children's attention, not afraid of biting, and can be safely provided to children when they are washed at home. 

The prerequisite is that the quality must pass, and the product that does not fade and has no safety hazards is selected. I believe that the brand is still necessary.

After 6 months, as the baby's developmental level improves, we can even call the "five senses" to increase the richness of the baby's reading materials.

Books can be read by themselves or you can read books with the baby. The first book that I remember reading for my son was a picture book called “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss.

A few years later, I read the children’s classic "The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson and I highly recommend it. This is a story about a poor farmer who owns a farmhouse in the countryside and his wife who has just had a baby. The Gruffalo is a strange creature who lives in the countryside.

Some books have been written specifically for children. These books, such as "The Gruffalo," "Jungle Book,” "The Tale of Peter Rabbit Story," and "The Little Prince,” are all perfect for your babies.

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for reading this article. I hope that you enjoyed it.

3. Guess How Much I Love You 

Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney

Little Nutbrown Hare wants to show his daddy how much he loves him, and his dad wants to show him right back. This adorable book perfectly captures the endless love a parent has for their child.

When you love or love someone very much, maybe you want to describe this feeling. But, as the little rabbit and the big rabbit discovered; love is really not an easy thing to measure.

Children always like to compare themselves with others. The little bunny in the picture book "Guess How Much I Love You" is a typical example. The little rabbit earnestly told the big rabbit "I love you so much", and the big rabbit responded to the little rabbit by saying, "I love you more!" 

In this way, not only is it sure that the big rabbit loves himself very much, but also hopes that his love can exceed the big one. Bunny love. He tried his best to describe his love with various body movements and visible sights until he fell asleep in the arms of the big rabbit.

There is a little rabbit-like child and a big rabbit-like father in this picture book. The little rabbit loves comparison like all children. Who loves more of them in the game. The big rabbit used his wisdom to win the competition and the little rabbit's slightly less love, but the little rabbit used its innocence and imagination to win the big rabbit twice as much love. Both rabbits won. 

The whole work is full of a loving atmosphere and happy childlike fun. The friendly and lovely image of the little rabbit, the story structure of the two rabbits competing against each other, the image, and the novel details of the setting all have great appeal to the children. 

The author is Sam McBrainy, Irish, and the drafter is Anita Jielang, British. The "Guess How Much I Love You" is their classic work and has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.

4. We're Going on a Bear Hunt 

We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Helen Oxenbury & Michael Rosen

A tale of a brave family’s adventures as they search for a bear. But will happen when they actually find him? The rhythmic text will have you singing along.

A tale of a brave family’s adventures as they search for a bear. But will happen when they actually find him? The rhythmic text will have you singing along.

The whole story is like a movie. It took two-thirds of the length to advance slowly. Suddenly the plot developed rapidly and reached its peak, but when it was tense, there would be mistakes in the middle of the day, which was shocking, but fortunately, in the end, It will always end safely.

The whole book is 32 pages, and 28 pages are about the difficulties they encountered on the way to catch the bear.

The sentences are beautiful, from simple sentences to complex sentence patterns. The keywords are very repetitive, such as bear hunt, such as a river, mud, snowstorm, forest, etc. Onomatopoeia is a highlight, and the atmosphere is very good when it is read to children.

This journey reached a climax after seeing the big bear. The children liked to quickly tell their escape route home, and finally saw the whole family get into the quilt and say goodnight to the big bear~ we can also turn off the lights and sleep.

5. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom 

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault

All the letters of the alphabet are in a race with one another up the coconut tree. But will there be enough room for them all? This well-loved children’s book introduces the alphabet in a clever and fun way.

A bunch of letters that are alphabets went on a coconut tree. Then more and more of them climbed up until the tree fell down. Then the alphabet fell down too. Then they got their little children in their pants. 

They all called for help. D, E, and F have boos and G is out of breath. M is looped. N is stooped. O is a twisted alley-oop. P had a black eye and became black-eyed P. 

Then all the alphabet came back to the coconut tree. But there is a full moon. A is out of bed and this is what he said: "I'll beat you to the top of the coconut tree." The end.

This is my favorite book. It's a book of letters. I like to sing ABC songs almost all day!

7. The Pout-Pout Fish 

The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen

A recent favorite of ours because I just discovered this book with my preschooler (not a baby under one, but better late than never)! The pout-pout fish discovers being glum and spreading “dreary wearies” isn’t really all that much fun. This rhyming book full of colorful pictures is sure to turn the biggest frowns into great big smiles.

9. Big Red Barn 

Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown

Follow along from morning until nighttime as the barnyard animals spend their day on the farm. The simple, rhythmic is perfect for young listeners.

By the big red barn in the great green field, There was a pink pig who was learning to squeal. There were horses and sheep and goats and geese--and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn. 

In joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margaret Wise Brown's simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps. 

There were horses and sheep and goats and geese--and a jaunty old scarecrow leaning on his hoe. And they all lived together by the big red barn. 

In joyous and exuberant pictures, Felicia Bond lovingly evokes Margarett Wise Brown's simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps."

Brown's melodic text is beguiling, while its subject the big red barn that houses a menagerie of animals and their offspring will have instant appeal to young children. 

Bond's newly added drawings have a simplicity that suits the story about the cycle of a day on a farm]. A welcome reprise." ' BL. Children's Books of 1989 (Library of Congress)

10. Jamberry 

Jamberry by Bruce Degen

Hansberry Shoeberry In my cranberry Under the bridge And over the dam. Looking for berries Berries for jam They're off...a boy and an endearing, rhyme-spouting bear, who squires him through a fantastic world of berries. And their adventure comes to a razzamatazz finale under a strawberry sky.

A young boy and a bear joyously romp through the land of berries where there are raspberry rabbits and a brass berry band with elephants skating on strawberry jam! Bruce Degen's exuberant tale, with his equally energetic and vibrant illustrations, is now a quality board book.

11. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

The whole book actually only has two sentence patterns with one question and one answer: "Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? I see a red bird looking at me." Then changing red bird to yellow duck, blue horse, green frog, purple cat... is substituted into the sentence pattern respectively. 

On the one hand, rhymes such as see and me are repeated repeatedly, which strengthens the sense of rhythm. On the other hand, it is the sequence of the display of various animals and colors. Repetition and sequence are the most interesting ways for children to recognize the outside world. 

In the eyes of us adults, the boring city sequence of weather forecasts and Sol’s boring commercials are some of the most popular programs in the eyes of young children.
    In fact, combined with the resume of the author Bill Martin Jr., a former elementary school teacher, and principal, I find that this book is more like a lesson plan for kindergarten teachers, or a reference book for parents to accompany their babies to study. for example:
  • This is a good way to teach babies to learn animal words and color words.
  • The answer mode of one question and one answer can establish interaction with the baby.
  • When referring to an animal, everyone simulates the animal's sound or walking posture, etc.
  • Use the fill-in-the-blank method to inspire children to see which other animals? Is there any color not mentioned?
  • After printing out the black and white outline drawing of the animal or letting the baby draw by himself, fill in the color.
  • Use Who do you see instead of What do you see? Ask the baby to say the names of other children or other family members.
  • The most important thing is that once babies master this questioning method, they can produce their own "brown bear" book. The content of the book can be animals, plants, or even everything around them. 

12. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

In today’s picture book promotion, let’s introduce a famous caterpillar "The Hungry Caterpillar". This caterpillar has been translated into 47 languages, published, and sold over 30 million copies. Imagine how many curious pairs there are. 

I have read it with my eyes, how many immature little hands have touched him, and see how this little egg turns into a beautiful butterfly under the moonlight.

      Eric's books are really suitable for children. They are colorful, and most of them have large and vivid images. They are very attractive to children who are new to picture books. Brother Hou has seen his "Brown Bear", "Moving from Head to Feet", "Dad, I Want the Moon", and "Mr. Sea Horse". 

Of course, Hou Ma likes it, especially "Hungry Caterpillar" and "Hippocampus". "Sir", through interesting paintings, to teach children some biological knowledge and love, is really commendable.

      The book's meaning is very simple, a small and hungry caterpillar crawls out of a small egg, and then after some time, it eats something, and finally becomes a butterfly. 

But it's so simple, it's not even a storybook, but the content is very rich. After reading a lot of picture books with Brother Hou, I found that one of the characteristics of picture books that children like is simple language, rich content, and silent moisturizing. 

For example, the language of this book: "On Monday, he ate an apple, but his stomach was still very hungry" "On Tuesday, he ate two pears, but his stomach was still very hungry" and "On Wednesday, he ate three plums, 

However, the stomach is still very hungry" This sentence pattern repeats until Friday. The sentence pattern is simple and repetitive, and there are echoes and correspondences. The children will know some numbers and the concept of the day of the week, as well as fruits, and "hungry". 

In fact, the more we become accustomed to some things, the more difficult it is for us to explain them to children. For example, what is hunger, you tell him "the empty stomach wants to eat, as opposed to full"? 

Strangely, he is interested in remembering, so he might as well pick up the picture book subtly. Brother Hou is one years old today. 

In the morning, Hou's Mom said, "I'm going to eat!" The bastard Pippi said "Don't eat anymore! Get hungry!" Knowing to make a joke about "hungry", it is hard to say that there is no credit for "The Hungry Caterpillar".
      Perhaps the most attractive thing for children in this book is the holes in the things that have been eaten by caterpillars. There are really holes in the book. They are small and round, just enough to reach the baby's fingers, and the baby smiles. It's fun to play with your fingers. 

Adults find it very interesting. Some books feel very three-dimensional, because for example, eating an apple has only a narrow page as wide as an apple, and eating two pears has a page as wide as two pears. The following figure:

       However, the book also considered that because of the influence of the length of the pages, a piece of white paper was allocated, as shown in the picture below, but this piece of white paper was matched by me, and the original one was thickly taken away and scribbled.

      The caterpillar, who was still hungry after Friday, broke out on Saturday. After eating a lot of food, his stomach hurts. Here is an interesting detail. Originally, the caterpillar’s face was red, but when the stomach hurts, it is very sickly pink, and pitiful. 

Then the next day it felt more comfortable after eating a tender green leaf, and at this time its face was red again.

     Then, the caterpillar grew bigger.

     Then, the caterpillar made a cocoon.

     Then, ah! The caterpillar turned into a beautiful butterfly.

     This is the whole thing about this vivid book. Mom and baby are very happy to read it. Maybe, when you think that the interest of this book makes you feel that what you learn is not important, you just learned a lot.

     Repetitive and slightly changed things make people happy, like a gradual life.

14. Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown & Clement Hurd

"Good Night, Moon" is a deceptive book. At first glance, it is extremely simple. The color's main tone is red and green. On the retrospective page, it is processed in black and white tones. 

The sky is getting late and the colors are getting darker. Composition single scene, just like the bunny's home before going to bed, and a few stars outside the window, half moonlight. Text-a few words, the little bunny said to the surrounding scenery one by one: Good night.

    Just such a bedtime book. The words are over. That's it.

    That's it? Many things can't be finished in a few words, and the power of words will never be as powerful as you think.

    If you really get this book, if you don't turn it over and toss it a few times, you can't see it at all. In the process of reading this book, it is as if you are the little rabbit, rolling left and right on the bed, tossing and turning, and when you are exhausted fall asleep peacefully.

    The most interesting part of this book is that it turns over and over again. You have to look over and over again, over and over to confirm your previous impressions and impressions, over and over and over and over again be defeated by the errors and surprises, and then, you will say good night with the little rabbit with all your heart!

    First, the scene, the fireplace, the paintings, the table, the bedside table, etc. The little rabbit is lying on the bed, bored. When I turned the page, two black-and-white images appeared, which turned out to be the previous hanging paintings on the wall. In order to verify, I had to turn back and take a look.

    The scene inside the house reappeared, only slightly enlarged. Turning the page again, there are two more black and white pictures, one is a bedside table, and I have seen before. Another one, wow! Don't have such fun! When does an old lady weaving wool come out? When you look back in a hurry, you were deceived!

    After that, you will become tentative and cautious, but you still can't stop the author's tricky tricks-the cat, in the initial picture; the socks on the shelf-gone; the hut, turn back Only found the first few pages; where is the mouse? Where's the mouse? Where's the mouse?

    The process of the little rabbit saying good night to everything inside and outside the house is the process of finding the existence of everything. It spared no effort to find it, and it spared no effort to be exhausted.

    The light in the room slipped away, and the stars and the moon lit up quietly. The fire is booming, little rabbit, good night!

15. The Going-To-Bed Book

The Going-To-Bed Book by Sandra Boynton

This is a super bestseller on Amazon. It is also recommended by many domestic and foreign children's book lists!

For the little guy who doesn't want to sleep, a funny book is exactly what they want. Speaking of funny books, Sandra Boynton is undoubtedly a queen in this regard. In "It's Time to Sleep", a big ship full of animals is accompanied by a sinking sunset, and the animals are about to go to sleep. 

They take a bath ("in a big bathtub"), find pajamas, brush their teeth, exercise on the table (imagine: elephants are jumping rope, moose are lifting weights, pigs are standing upside down), and finally, they say good night. 

The moon is high, the sea is deep, shake, shake, shake to... a sweet dream! Over the years, Boynton’s unique animal characters have added luster to a large number of picture books. 

She has extraordinary skills that children like simple rhythms, stupid animals in stupid situations, and warm stories. This book, like many of her other cardboard books ("Moo, Bae, Lala La!", "But No Hippo", etc.), will be everyone's favorite book. (Infant to preschool age)

16. What’s Wrong, Little Pookie?

What's Wrong, Little Pookie? by Sandra Boynton

Boynton is back! Our favorite children's book author has written another popular work.

It talks about children having strong emotions—unhappy or angry or bored or helpless—but it cannot explain their feelings or the reasons for these feelings. A child fell into depression, and the person caring for it asked a series of questions to know the reason for it. 

The adult's question is presented in thick black font, and the reply is written in small red letters. are you tired? no. Are you hungry? no. Did you lose something? no. 

In the end, the adult realized that he might not be able to receive a definite answer, so he started asking funny and boring questions, making him laugh, and helping him out of his predicament. 

This question-and-answer approach makes this book very suitable for parents and children to read together. This is a cute little book and a good tool to help children regulate their emotions. Super recommended! 

Sandra Boynton is an American best-selling children's book author, children's musician, director, and cartoonist. 

Her six children's books have won five stars for life in the US "Publisher Weekly" Children's Book List, 2 books won the National Parenting Publication Gold Award, 2 times won the American Cartoonists Association Book Category, Greeting Card Illustration Award, won the American Cartoonists Association Milton Kaniff Lifetime Achievement Award, and the music album "Philadelphia Chickens" won Nominated for the Grammy Best Children's Music Album Award... 

Boynton, who is extremely talented in language art, painting, and music: Making music, her 3 children's music albums were certified as gold records, and they sold more than 500,000 copies. 

"Philadelphia Chickens" was certified as a platinum record and sold more than 1 million copies; as an art designer, her greeting cards sold more than 200 million copies; she created children's books, and her children's books sold more than 60 million copies. 

The children's books she created brought joy to three generations of American families and became a trusted children's book writer.

17. But Not the Hippopotamus

But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton

A shy hippo makes a big impact in this anniversary edition of a Sandra Boynton classic. A hog and a frog cavort in the bog. But not the hippopotamus. A cat and two rats are trying on hats. 

But not the hippopotamus. The original But Not the Hippopotamus was an instant favorite among children and parents. Now this hilarious Boynton book is back in a Special 30th Anniversary Edition, complete with its silly rhymes and humorous, charming illustrations. 

In this simple, playful board book, a shy hippo watches as other animals engage in social activities. Finally, the other animals invite the hippo along and, after dithering a moment, she leaps into the fun...with hilarious results. 

The repetitive, enjoyable rhythm, cheerful mood, and well-crafted, simple rhymes will endear this story to toddlers everywhere. This anniversary edition has an enlarged trim size and metallic ink on the cover, making this Boynton classic even more special.

"But Not the Hippopotamus" was published in 1982. This is a very interesting children's book, and it can also introduce some simple vocabulary for young readers. 

My 1-year-old child thinks this is the funniest book in the world so far. Second only to "Blue Hat, Red Hat", this is his favorite Boynton book. We sang "But there are no hippos" in an opera accent to make it interesting, and it seemed to work!

18. Rainbow Fish

The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister

Buying the children's book "Rainbow Fish", the little guy is of course far from being able to really read the content, but this colorful and beautiful book really attracted him among the many newly purchased books, and he took it out to read it happily.

I flipped through the contents of the Rainbow Fish, so I became entangled. Maybe he should throw it away while he didn’t understand it, so as not to read such a “bloody” book; or it should be shown to him, just a few pages. 

The picture book is soaked like human nature and the state of affairs in the world, so that he may be educated and harmonized with the world.

The story is about nothing more than a fish with colorful and silvery scales by nature. It is the most beautiful fish in the deep sea, but it is not gregarious. A small fish asks him for a silver scale. He refused. 

Who thinks you are and why should I? If you want to pull out your scales and put them on your body, he told the whole school of fish about this, so no one cares about this beautiful fish. 

He is very painful. Why is he so beautiful but everyone doesn't like him. Later, the squid master told him that if he distributed the silver scales to everyone, he would no longer be beautiful, but he would be happy. 

So in the end, "The First Beauty in the Deep Sea" stripped out all the beautiful scales of the fish in the sea, leaving only one piece by itself, so the whole school of fish has silver scales, everyone is the same, everyone is happy, "the deep sea is not No matter how beautiful, I finally had a sense of belonging and happiness for the first time, and I was dragged by everyone to play together.

This story is packaged under "sharing education", but it has ups and downs to the laws of survival and the truth in the world. Benefit-sharing, convergence, and gregariousness. The rainbow fish eliminates the characteristics bestowed by heaven, and all the fish become the same and harmonious group.

Isn’t the goal of human society’s efforts to tolerate dissidents and pursue excellence? Work hard to maintain yourself, and welcome all friends who are different from us, weaker or stronger than us, and we applaud enthusiastically for any fireworks that are different...

Little rainbow fish, did it hurt when you pulled out the shining scales? Is there bleeding? Have you ever thought that there should be another kind of happiness that is not so painful and distorted?

And as for every ordinary mother, should we encourage the little guys to "do not know the truth", or should they mature sooner or later and effectively and effectively "socialize"?

According to the child's father: "From then on, there is no real rainbow fish in the deep sea."

19. Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA 

Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA by Jimmy Fallon

Your baby's first word will be...



Everyone knows that fathers wage a secret campaign to ensure that their babies' first word is "Dada!"

But how does it work?

One of the most popular entertainers in the world and NBC's Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, shows you how.

Emmy Award and Grammy Award winner Jimmy Fallon did everything in his power to ensure that his daughter's first word would be "Dada!" Yes, he has many other projects on his plate, like hosting NBC's The Tonight Show. 

But he was determined that his daughter would say "Dada!" before any other word. He worked very hard on this. Jimmy Fallon lives with his wife, Nancy, and their daughters, Winnie Rose and Frances Cole, in New York City. Winnie's first word was "Mama!"

Complete with silly rhymes and containing redrawn art that retains all the humor and charm of the original illustrations, this book introduces children to animal sounds like only Sandra Boynton can! 

This anniversary edition has an enlarged trim size and metallic ink on the cover, making this timeless classic even more special.
