How do you choose good books for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers? Here is the first rule – choose books that you love! You will read these same books over and over and over, and enjoying them is the first gift you want to give to the little one you are reading with. The first books you choose will be with you until your infant becomes a toddler, becomes a preschooler, and goes off to kindergarten. While there are special guides for differing ages of very young children, you will find that the same book you chose for a 6 week old will still be requested when they are four or five.
