Good books for babies can be hard to find. The numbers of books in most libraries can be overwhelming, even in the toddler section, and the parents of the 0-3 age group are usually too busy keeping the kiddos safe, well-fed, properly rested, and entertained to share their recommendations.
Luckily, the Guardian archives have an interesting list of books for the Up to 3's. I like it because it's a little different than an American approach (though it does feature books by the U.S.'s own Mo Willems...how could it not!).
Let's put our heads together for all the new parents out there. What would the rest of you add to the Guardian's roster of books for babies? I'll start things off by nominating Anne Rockwell's Hello, Digger.
