Board Book Bonanza

Calling all babies!  Are your days a little monotonous?  Are you tired of staring at your mobile?  Sick of being licked by the dog?  Bored with strained carrots for dinner again?  Take charge of your life!  Bring your parents to the library to check out a board book.  The categories of books below are especially popular with babies of a certain age.

Black and White  (0-4+ months)

Even the littlest babies like looking at high contrast pictures.  Try authors Tana Hoban and Peter Linenthal.

Die-cut Pages  (4-8+ months)

Books with oddly shaped pages and holes make learning to turn pages easy and invite little hands to explore.  Try authors Nina Laden, Chris L. Demarest, and SAMi.

Lift the flap  (8-12+ months)

The fine-motor challenge of that flap is almost as fun as the anticipation of what’s underneath.  Try author Karen Katz.
