I Am A Bunny

This book is about Nicholas the bunny who does fun things in the summer, fall, spring and winter. It’s a great introduction to the seasons, and the illustrations are beautiful and interesting.

Freight Train

I confess. I bought this book because it was only a few dollars at TJ Maxx, and I also noticed that this book received an award. But I was apprehensive because it looked like such a boring book.

Babies on the Bus

This book is a delight! Like the illustrations in the rest of Katz’s books, the illustrations in this one are bright and engaging, because combination of the the babies’ faces and the colorful [...]

Goodnight Gorilla

“Good night”, I gruffled. This was my son’s favorite page. This is really a wonderful story with hardly any text, which gives you the flexibility to make the story your own.

Baby Einstein Alphabooks

Oh, how guilty I felt buying these books! I tend to buy a lot of books, which leads me to have buyer’s remorse...a lot! But a teacher friend bought this book set for her son and used them like [...]

Baby Faces

Babies love to look at faces, and this is a great book to let your baby engage in this intellectual activity. The pages are small in size, which makes it easier for your baby to see and study the [...]

Bear on a Bike

My son was captivated by this book from day one because of the illustrations. They’re colorful and bright and there’s so much detail that we spent much time on each page just talking about what we saw.

Toes, Ears, & Nose!

This is an adorable lift-the-flap book helpful in introducing your little one to different body parts. As always, Katz’s illustrations are bright and colorful, boasting busy, playful patterns.

Chugga-Chugga Choo Choo

I love this book more than my son does. This book was in heavy rotation for a few weeks and then tapered off to zero interest for some reason. Sometimes I would gently suggest reading it and he [...]

Pop-Up Peekaboo Farm

This is a wonderful book for babies. I started reading this to my son when he was around 8 months old. We read it every day until he was about 13 months or so. “Wait” you say! That’s only 5 [...]

Noisy Trucks

What makes this book so great? This book held my son’s interest from when he was about 11 months old to 2 years old. It’s a simple book featuring 5 trucks, but the best part is you press a button [...]

Open the Barn Door…

This was one of the first books I bought for my little one, back when I knew nothing about buying baby books. I bought it online, thinking it looked like a fun book for introducing farm animals [...]

Goodnight Moon

While in college I babysat two sisters, and was introduced to this book. I would dread it when they would request this book. The book seemed awfully long and the illustrations were ugly….who has [...]


Olivier Dunrea is brilliant. Really! The first two pages are almost the exact same picture of an egg nestled in hay, with the words “This is Ollie. Ollie is waiting”.

From Head to Toe

If you’re looking to move and read with your toddler as opposed to just sitting and reading, this book will definitely have you both out of your seat. I selected this book on Amazon for exactly [...]


This book has been a delight, and it’s on its way to becoming a treasure as well.. I chose this book on a whim from the library, and my son loved it from the very first page.

Moo, Baa, La La La!

This is a simple, but smart book for older babies and young toddlers. It’s humor is downright silly, yet intelligent and unexpected. Your little one will love it when the pattern of animal noises [...]

A You’re Adorable

Initially I was on the fence about buying this book. I was in TJ Maxx and I already had a shopping cart full of stuff. I had a little debate in my head about whether Daniel needed yet another [...]
