Re: Board book recommendation, 1-2 year old?

My oldest's favorite (at least her favorite that is an easy book to come by) was I Love You Stinky Face. Some of her first phrases and sentences came from that book

^ My son likes that one, too.

"Everywhere Babies," by Susan Meyers (illustrated by Marla Frazee) is my son's current favorite. It's nice and big, too.

I'll third Sandra Boynton! I love most everything we've read. If I were buying one it would be "Moo Baa La La La" or "Hippos go Berserk"

Re: Board book recommendation, 1-2 year old?

The two favorite board books in our house are our bedtime stories:

I Love You Through And Through by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak and Caroline Jayne Church

Pajama Time! by Sandra Boynton

My DD loves Brown Bear, Brown Bear. Also there is a series of books with a duck called Little Quack. Some of them are wordier than others, but she goes nuts for them.

I see several people got to Sandra Boynton before I did, so I'll just ditto. Fun to read, fun to look at, and the ones we've had have held up well. I think DS's current favorite is The Going to Bed Book, but he also likes Moo, Baa, La La La. My 5-year-old DD still reads Doggies and Blue Hat, Green Hat.

Peek-a-zoo from scholastic. DS has loved this book since he was a few months old (he is now 15 months). It is a large book and has lots of touchy feely things and he just loves it. I used to think it was too big, but now I like that feature. he also loves the touchy-feely books by DK

This book, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

Counting Kisses, was special for all of us because it was interactive. My daughter would squirm and giggle in anticipation!

My kids really liked the books 'That's not my ______' They are suborn books and you can fill in the blank with almost any type of animal. We have lots of them (bunny, bear, dinosaur, fairy, princess, train, puppy, etc) and DS loves them as much as his sisters did at that age. They are a touch and feel book.
