12 to 24 months > Books For 12-24 Month Olds

My 14 month old son has had revolving book favourites since he turned his first page last Christmas (and boy was that a milestone!). For the last 7 months or so he has been loving Mommy, Carry Me Please! by Jane Cabrera. Every page is a different mommy animal carrying her baby. He loves the eyes of each character and the fact that it's mommies and babies (he's big into other babies right now). He also LOVES Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathman. The (beautiful) illustrations are really appealing to him, and to me too! He's been really lucky to get tons of book hand-me-downs from his cousins and other family and friends. I'm always looking for great new books to read to him. We also love the library and go at least once a week. I'm really trying to instill a love of books in him as my father did with me. Our time together looking at books is really special. I am still the biggest bookworm I know, only now I have much less time to read!
