Book Lists and Recommended Reads

50 Best Books for Babies

The books on this list were chosen by Read to Me with assistance from a group of Nova Scotia children’s librarians. The selected books contain strong rhythm and rhyme to help build vocabulary, feature bright colours and bold images for visual stimulation and help nurture bonding and attachment by encouraging playful interaction between parent and child.
