More Than Just Books

During the first year of your child’s life, try books that do more than convey a story. Books with puffy pages, or pages that squeak or crinkle, or books with built-in activities (think: Pat the Bunny) work best not just because they’re fun, but because they hold an infant’s attention and get her used to a hopefully lifelong reading routine.
