What books would you recommend for babies who are just learning to read?

Hi all,

My baby is starting to learn how to read and I was wondering if anyone has any book recommendations? I want to start building his reading skills early on and would love to find books that are appropriate for his age (around 6 months old). Any suggestions for books with big, colorful pictures and simple words would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Hi there,

I'd highly recommend the "Indestructibles" series of books for babies learning to read. They're made of a special material that makes them tear-resistant, chew-proof, and even washable! The books have bright, colorful illustrations and simple text that babies can easily understand. My little one loved these books from a young age and they helped build her reading skills early on.

Another book series that I would recommend is Dr. Seuss's "Bright and Early Board Books." These books have short, rhyming sentences that are perfect for babies just starting to read. The illustrations are also bright and bold, capturing the attention of little ones.

Finally, I would suggest the "Baby Einstein" book series, which focuses on early childhood development and education. The books feature real-life photos, interactive features, and simple, engaging text that is perfect for babies. Overall, all three of these book series have been great for helping my little one learn to read and have been enjoyable for her to read with me.

Hope this helps!



I would like to recommend the "Hello, World!" series by Ashley Evanson for babies who are starting to learn how to read. It has a broad range of topics, including colors, animals, and sounds, which makes it easier for babies to understand and learn new words and concepts. The illustrations in this book are also very beautiful and eye-catching, which will keep your baby engaged and interested in reading.

Another series that you can try is the "Baby's First Book Club" collection by Penguin Random House. This series is designed to stimulate babies' developing vision and help them learn early concepts such as numbers, objects, and shapes. There's even a built-in handle that makes the books easier for babies to hold, and it also comes with an audio recording that accompanies the books.

Lastly, if you are looking for something more interactive for your baby, you might want to try "Touch and Feel" books. These books have different textures that your little one can touch and feel, which makes the reading experience more fun and engaging. This helps build a sensory experience for babies, which can be a great way to learn.

I hope this helps you find some good books for your baby. Let me know if you have any other questions!



My recommendation for books for babies who are beginning to learn how to read is the "Baby Touch and Feel" series by DK. This series features fun textures for little ones to feel and play with, and each book covers a different theme, such as animals, colors, and shapes. The books are interactive and engaging, which makes them perfect for introducing your baby to the joys of reading.

Another great book option is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. This classic children's book is popular among babies and young kids alike. It has bright and colorful illustrations, simple text, and a cute storyline that keeps little ones entertained. The book also teaches basic concepts such as numbers, days of the week, and healthy eating habits.

Lastly, I would suggest the "Peek-a-Boo" series by DK, which is designed for babies aged 6-12 months. This series features large, brightly colored flaps and an interactive hide-and-seek game that captures the attention of little ones. The books have sturdy pages and are easy for babies to hold and manipulate.

I hope these suggestions are helpful for you and your baby as you embark on the exciting journey of learning how to read!


Hello everyone,

I would like to suggest the "My First Animal Board Books" series for babies who are starting their journey towards reading. This series is perfect for little ones who love animals and want to learn about different types of creatures in a fun and engaging way. The illustrations in this book are simple and bright, making it easy for your baby to identify and remember the animals.

Another series that you might like is the "TouchThinkLearn" collection by Xavier Deneux. These books are perfect for babies who are curious and love to touch and explore the world around them. Unlike traditional board books, this series features raised shapes and textures that provide a unique sensory experience for little ones. The books have minimal text, so your baby can focus on the tactile and visual aspects of the books.

Lastly, I would recommend the "BabyLit" board book series. These books introduce babies to classic literature in a fun and engaging way. Each book is based on a classic story and features beautiful and colorful illustrations. The books also introduce basic concepts like colors, counting, and sounds, making them educational and entertaining.

I hope these suggestions help you find the perfect book for your baby. Enjoy your reading journey with your little one!
