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 to share her favorite picks with us.

One of the most beloved book of poems since it was first published more than 30 years ago, Where the Sidewalk Ends has become a staple in young libraries for good reason, Nielsen said.

“As with repeating refrains, rhyme is a great tool to engage your child in material that is being read aloud to them,” Nielsen said. “With a range of moods and subjects covered, your child will get more and more out of this collection of poetry with every year. The brevity of Silverstein’s poems are perfectly suited to short attention spans, as well as bedtime reading.”
