We received one of these for my first born and made one for multiple friends since. They have always been well received.

Board books we loved:jamberry, we got an eco series that kids loved too but the only title i can recall is the tiniest seed. all sandra boynton are great but we especially the belly button book. Chicka chicka ABC is classic.

Rainbow fish, the day the crayons quit, we are gonna be friends by jack white, miss nelson is missing are great once you move away from board books

Thanks for all the suggestions! I've already grabbed a few off amazon based on this thread :pint:

Mr. Paul was born :clap: 12 hours early, last Wednesday night. I can't wait to start reading him some of this stuff and have more waiting for when he's older.

Congarts Cragars!

A bit older but books I had when I was a kid.

Richard Scarry were among my favorites, still great as I came across some of my old ones.

Agree with Bubbie there about books with flaps and textures when they're still small. Mine liked the Spot the Dog books and the Ladybird busy series (e.g. Busy Farm - https://www.amazon.com/Lift-Flap-Busy-F ... t+the+flap)

When they get bigger, the world's their oyster. Julia Donaldson is always a safe bet.

We need to mention the Elephant and Piggie books by Mo. They are awesome. We have about a dozen of them. My youngest is 7 now, and pretty much done with them, but from 4-6 these were in heavy rotation. It's spendy ($100ish), but I'd suggest just going with the full collection. Individually they'd cost over $200. And go with the hardcover. We read the paperback ones so much they fell apart.

There's also an Elephant and Piggy play that makes the rounds to the children's theaters around the country that's very good.

And yes, you gotta do voices.

For sure. I always have any 3rd character be my normal voice, though.

I use my normal voice for narration. I get really goofy with character voices. The kids love it.
