I love it when I find a classic book that is also fun and age-appropriate for a baby. I Am a Bunny, illustrated by Richard Scarry, is just such a book!
Susie already loves this book. It's sturdy, colorful, and a great tall size (the shape reminds me of another favorite -- Babies by Gyo Fujikawa). Though the pictures have great detail and command attention, each page has a fairly short and simple phrase or sentence, which is ideal when reading to a squirmy baby!
Recently Susie has started bringing me books to read her. She'll whip one out of her basket and tell me "dat" (meaning "read that", I guess). Usually after about 4 or 5 pages, she whips out another and tells me "dat". Every once in a while, she likes to hear the whole thing and sometimes she hands it back to me and tells me "dat" again because she wants to hear it a second time! That's really exciting to me! The other day she started fussing when I started to stand up and I realized she was trying to hand me Brown Bear Brown Bear to read again. You better bet I reread her those bookies just as many times as she'd like!
