Thoughts on the books
That boxed set of 12 board books has been read many times at our house. We have the Toy Story set, but this Mickey Mouse set is the exact same format. I found a preloved copy of My First Animal Sounds at a children's book share, and was so excited to bring this home and read it with S. I remember having a copy of this book when I was little. I know there is a board book copy of Go Dog Go, but we love the full-length version best. Between 1 and 2, Seb loved "dictionary" type books just full of pictures of objects with the words underneath. We have a few different versions, but a simple My First Words book was his favourite. Mama Loves Me (and similarly, Daddy Loves Me) are great books for this age because it's simple, repetitive, and highlights many activities toddlers do with their parents at that age. Super cute:) Finally, despite some arguments believing this book somehow encourages child violence towards fathers, we love Hop on Pop. Isn't one of the important lines from the book, "Stop. You must not hop on pop??" Anyways.....
You can see that our stack is well-loved. So much so that our copy My First Words was taped and retaped so many times that it eventually had to be thrown out and replaced with the First ABC book.
Do you have any other books to add to this list? I'd love to hear them!
