Books for babies (0 – 18 months old)

It’s never too early to introduce children to the joy and wonder of books and reading with cloth books for babies like The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Baby Touch: My First Book. As children get older, introduce them to the Baby Touch board books, which offer a sensory experience for children as they lift flaps, operate tabs and take in colourful illustrations. Early learning books like the Spot the Dog books and nursery rhyme books for babies will create lifelong readers.
