10 Classic Children’s Books to Read to Baby

Building baby's first library is one of parenting's many pleasures. We asked Jordan B. Nielsen, a blogger at TheRustyKey.com to share her favorite picks with us.

Winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal, A Sick Day for Amos McGee tells the story of a zookeeper whose animals decide to take care of him for a change when he comes down with a cold.

“Before the age of two, there may not be a lot that your child will understand of a storyline, but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t get them started on books they’ll grow into,” Nielsen said. “Wonderfully sweet and poignant with soft illustrations, Amos is the perfect addition to an early library.”
