Pearl is just over 2 months old, and so I figured it was about time to start reading baby books to her. I have been reading aloud to her from both my books and the Bible since birth, but while I think it's important to read more mature books to her so that she can get the feel for language (and so I don't go crazy by not being able to read all day), I also would like to read books to her that she can enjoy right now.
Currently I have introduced 2 board books to her. One is a book on colors. She is ambivalent about it. Some pages seem to engage her, others seem to bore her out of her mind. The second book, Peek-a Who?, is receiving rave reviews. She stares transfixed at the pages, and never fusses while I'm reading it.
Other books that we own but have not yet read to her include Big Red Barn, Goodnight Moon, and several Boynton books. I am not entirely convinced that she would appreciate these yet, but if you have first-hand experience that proves me wrong, I would love to know about it!
I'm planning a library run sometime this week, and I need more book suggestions. What books did your children enjoy at this age?
