The Littles


A child is never too young to read a book. The shapes, colors, and textures of many picture books tell as much of a story as the words. This page is for the littles in our life, who want to read like Mommy and Daddy. Most of the books on this list are available in little board books, which are perfect for chubby hands learning to turn pages.
