Our Four Favorite Board Books for Little Babies

Since Ivey’s arrival I have read well over 100 different board books to her. Most of these these books we found at our local library however, we have purchased several dozen as well. Out of all the books the following four are presently her favorites.

Look
This board book contains nine modern, clean, well designed illustrations. These illustrations seem to quickly grab Ivey’s attention due to their large scale and boldness. This particular book contains no copy. Since the modern look matches the decor in our loft I often leave it sitting on our coffee table.

Count
This board book contains a modern, clean illustration and a simple yet catchy story. The copy on each page reads, “Blue bird, blue bird, what do you see? I see (insert number from 1-5) bird(s) up in the tree.” Again this book is so pretty that I often leave it on our coffee table. Ivey seems to really like the copy and I will also swap out the one, two, three, four, five, for uno, dos, tres, quatro, cinco to spice it up a bit.

Peek-A Who?
This board book contains colorful illustrations and content that seems to grabs Ivey’s attention. The content reads, “Peek-a Who? Peek-a Moo! Peek-a Boo! Peek-a Zoo! Peek-a Choo-Choo! Peek-a You!” I have read this book so many times that I often recite it from memory when Ivey gets upset which always seems to calm her down and make her smile.

Baby Faces
This board book contains sixteen photos of babies with different expressions and states (i.e. happy, sad, dirty, clean). Although the book itself is quite simple Ivey seems to really enjoy looking at the babies’ faces. Her favorite seems to be the “happy” baby.

  1. We love to read books too! Great post. I’ll have to check out the books you recommended. They look great! Ben’s Top 4 (of the moment) would be:

    -Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
    -That’s not my frog…
    -Where Is Baby’s Belly Button?
    -My big animal book

  2. Jen,
    Thanks for letting me know Ben’s favorite books. Since Ben is a little older than Ivey this is very helpful. I have a feeling Ivey’s favorites will change every few months as she grows older.

  3. There are so many board books out now, its hard to choose. We love baby faces, hungry catepillar and brown bear…. but would love to get some new ones. Will check out the others.
