Must-have Board Books

Being the holiday season many parents (like myself, friends, and relatives) are searching for high-quality presents to give children.  One of my favorite thing to give to children of any age are BOOKS.  So, here’s my own list of Must-have Board Books for the very young:

  • Pat the Bunny, by Dorothy Kunhardt
  • Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown
  • The Runaway Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown
  • Big Red Barn, by Margaret Wise Brown
  • A, You’re Adorable, by Martha Alexander
