Reading To Kids (Ages 0-12 Months)

Updated: Feb 22, 2021




It's never too early to read to your baby. As soon as your baby is born, he or she starts learning. Just by talking to, playing with, and caring for your baby every day, you help your baby develop language skills necessary to become a reader. By reading with your baby, you foster a love of books and reading right from the start. For kids of this age, we recommend the following:

  • Since an infant's vision is still developing, books with bright and bold or high-contrast illustrations are easier for young babies to see, and will grab their attention.

  • Board books with sturdy cardboard pages are easier for a baby to handle and to play with. By about six to twelve months, babies start to get interested in books as toys to examine and manipulate.

  • Books that have simple pictures paired with single words help babies learn their first vocabulary.


Here are some of our best sellers for ages 0-12 months:
