Even your itty-bitty kiddos can learn to love reading! In today's post, Ruth will introduce you to books for babies and toddlers.
A few months ago I met Ruth, a Usborne book representative. Simon was playing with her book display at a fundraiser extravaganza and fell in love with a dinosaur sticker book. (Obviously, that book came home with us.) And now, I'm happy to announce that Ruth is sponsoring my next giveaway!! Woo-hoo!
Ruth is also contributing on the blog, and over the next four posts, she'll describe all the fun ways that Usborne books can enrich your family. These amazing books are not only educational and fun, but they are quality-made inexpensive items. Durable books that don't cost a fortune? A parent's dream come true, right?

Good reading habits start from the very
beginning your child's life, and that's the best place to start in those very first moments
with your child when they are itty-bitty. Did you know that reading as an
infant has a huge impact on their vocabulary, all the way into the toddler
years? Along with building a vocabulary, reading with your infants and toddlers creates an association of warm and cuddly feelings with books.
What about a
busy little one? Let them play with their cars, dolls, blocks, etc, and read to them
while they play. It is amazing how much they absorb, even when we don’t think
they are listening! At this age, board books are strong enough to handle a toddlers rough play or a babies bite. Features of great board books
include: vocabulary words, touchy-feely textures that stimulate sensory awareness, and sturdy pages. Our most popular series of board books is the
“That’s Not My. . ." books. These board books are fun, colorful and full of sensory
opportunities to help your little ones grow!
Toddlers can also benefit from Wipe-Clean books, Muddle and Match books
, and Paper creating books. Does your child want enjoy farm animals sounds? How about cooking lesson books? A quiet puzzle book? Or a realxing coloring books? Usborne Books has something for every age and hobby in their online catalog
