The Best First Books for Children
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Children are never too young for books, and if you start reading to them early, they will grow up cherishing books as some of their favorite treasures. My kids’ favorite first books were varied with some classics, some newer titles, and some that reflected their interests (trucks, trucks, and more trucks!). These treasures are now stored away, as I can never part with them. Maybe someday, I’ll be able to pull them out again and share them with my grandkids!
What are your favorite first books for children? If yours aren’t on my list, please leave a comment and share them with me!
