Your baby doesn't have to be old enough to understand a book's plot or storyline to develop a love of reading. Sharing a favorite story before bedtime is a routine that you can adopt from week one, as your lil one will love the soothing sound of Mom's or Dad's voice. We've rounded up 10 of our absolute favorite first board books for babies, all of which we think deserve a spot on your nursery's bookshelf.
For some lil ones, Goodnight Moon and The Little Engine That Could don't cut it. When a tot likes listening to Metallica's greatest hits, then table Twinkle Twinkle and line the bookshelves with reads that will suit their tastes. Though they don't feature the same rhymes as Dr. Seuss, these texts will have junior following in his urban mom and hipster dad's footsteps in no time.
