Baby's Top Picks

Well, the baby will be 12 months old next week and in her honor this entry is dedicated to her favorite top five books. I say her favorite, but in all fairness she only hears or "reads" a small number of the vast quantity we have at this time. Of course, as she continues to grow and mature, I am sure she will add to or change the top books she enjoys. The fact that she can pick a top five list shows her ability to be more concise than her own mother who for some reason can't decide on her own top five. But, I look at it this way, the older you get, the more exposure to books you receive; therefore, your book attachment has to be more than five. In my case more like five times five times five. Now the baby's book selection leans toward a mixture of fiction and non-fiction, whereas Mommy's is almost a pure fiction base and Daddy's is mostly a non-fiction collection. So for her memory book entry, the favorites for the first 12 months will look like this:
  1. Chicka Chicka ABC
    Bill Martin, John Archambault, Lois Ehlert (Illustrator)
  2. Kiss Good Night (reviewed previously)
    Amy Hest, Anita Jeram (Illustrator)
  3. Ten Little Ladybugs (try singing the words, baby loves to hear it as a song)
    Melanie Gerth, Laura Huliska-Beith (Illustrator)
  4. Animal Babies
    David Doepker, Sterling Publishing Company
  5. Touch and Feel Kitten
    DK Publishing

Grab a book, a baby, and have fun.

But what about the 97-cent kitten book?

Oh, she does really like this book, but you'll have to see the next entry for the top picks sequel. Plus, your brother says "it is good, but a really quick read".

I currently have a picture of Uncle Luke reading to the baby as my wallpaper. Our baby is looking so intently at the book that her uncle is reading.

I have a book, but my baby is 100+ miles from M-ville.
