What are some popular board books for babies that I should consider buying?

Hi everyone! I am a new mom and I am looking for some popular board books for my 6-month-old baby. I've heard that board books are durable and perfect for little hands to hold and interact with. My baby loves bright colors and textures, so I am searching for books that are visually appealing and engaging. I am looking for recommendations for board books that are appropriate for babies, but also entertaining and maybe even educational. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Hi there, as a father of two young children, I've had a lot of experience with board books! One of our favorites is "Little Blue Truck" by Alice Schertle. It has a great storyline about a little blue truck who learns the importance of kindness and helping others. It also features animal noises, which my kids love to repeat! Another book that we've enjoyed is "Press Here" by Hervé Tullet. It's not a traditional board book, but rather an interactive book about colors and shapes. It's a great way to engage little ones and spark their creativity. Lastly, "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault is a fun book about the alphabet that features vibrant illustrations and a catchy rhythm that makes it memorable for kids.


As a new mom, I would highly recommend the "That's Not My..." series by Fiona Watt. These books are great for sensory development as they feature various textures on every page for babies to touch and feel. My little one loves the bright colors and the cute illustrations. Another popular board book that my baby enjoys is "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown. The simple rhyming text is perfect for bedtime and the illustrations are calming and peaceful. Lastly, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle is a classic book that both my baby and I love. The colorful illustrations and engaging storyline make it a great choice for babies and young children alike.


I have to suggest "The Going to Bed Book" by Sandra Boynton. It has a fun, silly storyline about animals getting ready for bed and my daughter loves it. It's a perfect way to wind down before naptime or bedtime. Another book that my baby enjoys is "Peek-a-Who?" by Nina Laden. It has cutouts on each page that give a hint of what's to come, creating a fun and interactive experience. Lastly, "Pat the Bunny" by Dorothy Kunhard is a classic board book that I loved as a child and now my baby loves it too. It has different textures and activities on each page, making it a great multi-sensory experience.


Hello everyone! As a mother of triplets, I've gone through a lot of board books in my time. One of our favorites is "Moo, Baa, La La La!" by Sandra Boynton. It's a fun and engaging book that introduces different animal sounds to babies and toddlers. The illustrations are bright and colorful, making it visually stimulating for young ones. Another great board book is "The Very Busy Spider" by Eric Carle. The tactile features on each page make it interactive and interesting for little ones. My triplets love feeling the different textures on each page. Lastly, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle is another classic board book that we enjoy. The repetition and rhyming words make it easy for babies and toddlers to understand and learn.


Hi there! I am a proud auntie who has gifted many board books to my nieces and nephews over the years. One of my favorites is "Dear Zoo" by Rod Campbell. It has a fun lift-the-flap feature that keeps little ones guessing which animal will be revealed next. Another great board book is "Where's Spot?" also by Eric Hill. The bright illustrations and interactive flaps make it a favorite of many babies. For something a little more educational, "Baby's First Words" by Roger Priddy is a great choice. It features real photographs of objects and animals that babies can learn to recognize and name. I hope these suggestions help!
