Probably a picture book or two. MIL got us 'Carl's Christmas' which had no words in it but it was fun to be able to make up the words to go with the pictures and I think it encouraged the kids to switch it up a little bit when they started talking. :)


Have fun picking books!!

I'd suggest one of those hard page books of first words :-)

Hi Tina, I just discovered this place today. :)
I think Goodnight Moon and Love You Forever are great choices. I also love Pat the Bunny. My daughter loved/still loves that book! And, of course, Dr. Seuss books are great options as well.
