Board books: indestuctible, interesting and illustrated with care

Board books are the perfect way to introduce your baby to reading.  They are sturdy enough to withstand rigorous "inspection" by baby's hands and mouth and hold fun stories with bright pictures and words that will show your baby how fun reading can be.

Here's a just a sampling of new additions to our collection. These board books caught our eye and hopefully your little one's too.


National Geographic Look and Learn books

Filled with the eye-catching, clear photographs that the magazine is known for, these books are a great way to introduce your little one to simple concepts like Shapes, Opposites, Matching and Counting.


Karen Katz Lift-the-Flap books

Babies love surprises and these brightly colored, themed books are full of flaps to lift with little surprises underneath.  Your baby will love turning the pages and re-reading these to see what's under each flap!



A stand alone favorite for the year, stylized pictures and unexpected pairings make this book fun for babies and parents to read together! 

We have these and lots more board books at your local Jefferson County Library.  Check out a few at your next visit and have fun reading with your baby!
