5 Popular baby books

Books are the best companion and thus preferred by people of all age groups. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggest to start reading out books to your child at an age as early as six months as it proves to be a great opportunity for cuddling and bonding with your young one.

They even tend to pick up on the rhythm of its language. However, for a little older kids, reading out to them helps in building their vocabulary, stimulating their imagination and even improving their communication skills. Statistics show that learning skills and intelligence quotient of a child is depicted by how much of reading has been done to the child in his early months. Not forgetting to keep in mind that the books that you choose for your younger babies should be bold with interesting pictures to grad his attention, along with rhyming and simple words which are easy enough for them to follow and comprehend.
