Babies experience a critical period of brain growth and receptivity to language during the first two years of life. One of the benefits of reading to babies is that it allows us to take advantage of this unique period of development. Help lay a strong foundation for your baby's language and literacy development by reading aloud to your baby from birth. Here we share 10 of the best baby books to read aloud to very young children. These books make great baby shower gift ideas as well!

Touch and feel books, such as "Farm," provide plenty of tactile stimulation for young children. Babies love petting the dog and stroking the horse's nose.

It is never too early for a little humor. Leslie Patricelli's "Yummy, Yucky" introduces the concept of opposites, discussing which familiar objects are yummy and which are yucky. Anyone care for a snack of blue crayons? Yucky!
