According to The American Academy of Pediatrics, it’s never too early to start reading for your infant. Many pediatricians will soon encourage new parents that they should read to their children as soon as they are born.

Reading to a newborn might seem like a hopeless task at first. Babies aren’t able to understand words or even pay much attention to their surroundings yet. But, pediatricians believe that reading allows parents to interact with their children regardless of language issues. 

An old-fashioned book can help children get into the habit in reading and improve their education down the road. Make these reading habits as soon as you can by setting up a home library!

Here are very own book recommendations that you can read to your infant: 

1. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? By: Eric Carle

Children’s author has been known for create beautiful illustrations for original picture books. This particular book is filled with colorful collages of lovable animals.

2. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom By: Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault

Introducing your children to the alphabet early is never a bad idea! Sing along to this catchy chant while you learn the alphabet in a very unique and fun way! 

3. The Cat in The Hat By: Dr. Seuss

Enjoy the Seussical world by reading the clever rhymes to you your infant. You’ll even spark a little of your own childhood! 

4. Goodnight Moon By: Margaret Wise Brown and Pat Hancock

Make this bedtime story a tradition. Not only does it help children’s language development, but it can add a lovely memory with your new infant.
