My baby is showing interest in certain objects or activities. Are there any books that relate to those interests?

Hi everyone,

I am a new mother and my baby is starting to show a lot of interest in certain toys and activities. I wanted to know if there are any books out there that relate to these interests? For example, my baby loves anything related to animals and I was wondering if there are any books that could help me introduce him to different animals or teach him about their habitats and behaviors.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Hi there,

As a parent, I have faced a similar situation with my baby showing interest in certain objects and activities. What really worked for me was finding books that specifically catered to my baby's interests. For instance, my baby was fascinated with the outdoors and nature. So, I got several books on plants, birds, and animals, which kept him engaged and entertained for hours.

One book that I would highly recommend is "National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Animals." It features vibrant illustrations, interesting facts and is a great tool for teaching young children about different animals.

Another book series that my little one enjoyed was "Touch and Feel" books. These books have different textures that babies can touch and feel, which really captivates their attention. They come in various subjects such as animals, vehicles and even food!

Hope this helps, and happy reading!


Hello everyone,

I had a similar situation with my baby and I found that board books worked best. They are sturdy and the perfect size for little hands to hold and explore. My baby was obsessed with vehicles and anything that moved so I started looking for board books that featured pictures of cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes.

One of the books that worked beautifully was "Zoom, Zoom, Baby!: A Karen Katz Lift-the-Flap Book." It's a fun and interactive book that features different types of vehicles and has lift-the-flap elements that kept my baby entertained.

Another book that I highly recommend is "My First Trucks and Diggers" by Priddy Books. It's a simple but informative book that introduces kids to different types of trucks such as garbage trucks, bulldozers, and cement mixers. The book has bright and colorful illustrations and the text is easy to read and understand.

Overall, I had great success with board books when it came to keeping my baby engaged and helping them learn about the world around them.


Hello everyone,

My experience with my baby was a bit different as my little one showed an interest in music and sounds. I wanted to find books that would help him explore different sounds and rhythms, so I started looking for books that played music and had interactive elements.

One book that was a big hit was "Moo, Baa, La La La" by Sandra Boynton. It's a board book that introduces different animal sounds and has colorful illustrations that keep the little ones engaged. The book has buttons that make corresponding animal sounds when pressed, which was a huge hit with my baby.

Another book that we enjoyed was "Drum Dream Girl" by Margarita Engle. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a young girl who dreams of becoming a drummer. It's a great way to introduce children to the world of music and inspire them to pursue their dreams.

In conclusion, finding books that cater to your baby's interests and passions is a great way to help them learn and grow. Whether it's music, animals, shapes or colors, there are plenty of books out there that can help your little one explore the world around them.



I completely agree with user 1 that finding books that cater to your baby's interests is a great way to keep them engaged. My child showed a lot of interest in colors and shapes, so I started looking for books that taught those concepts.

One book that really helped was "My First Colors and Shapes" by DK Publishing. The book has bright and colorful pictures that keep babies entertained and engaged. It introduces concepts such as circles, triangles, and squares and also has some fun interactive pages where children can touch and feel different textures.

Another book that I came across was called "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. It's a classic book that not only teaches colors and shapes but also introduces children to the concept of days of the week and counting. My baby loved the bright illustrations and the cut-out pages that made the story even more interactive.

In conclusion, finding books that relate to your baby's interests is a great way to keep them entertained and help them learn new things.
