Read Baby, Every Day

Read this to me, before I can talk. Show me the sky as we go for a walk. Talk as you work. Talk as we play. I love your voice and all that you say...

Written by a pediatrician, this soft, rhyming story from a baby's point of view with dreamy watercolor illustrations celebrates the beloved, healthy ritual of parent-child reading. It also reinforces recent American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations to begin daily reading with children at birth, to promote bonding, language, attention, and other aspects of development. Read Baby, Every Day promotes shared reading and togetherness, and is perfect in every parent's early library to inspire the next generation of readers.

*Also available in Spanish as Lee Bebé, Diariamente.
