Babies Need Books

Penguin, 1995 - 255 pages
Dorothy Butler believes passionately that books should be a vital part of children's lives -- even in their very first months. But how do we go about introducing books to children? Which books should we share? When should we begin? Babies Need Books is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, and librarians -- indeed, for any adult eager to share with small children the pleasure books offer. Butler provides important guidelines for choosing appropriate books and recommends hundreds of titles. And for this revised edition, Butler's book selections have been supplemented by an extensive index of recently published titles readily available in North America.
