  • Soft baby book basics

    Why they're great for you and your baby

    For your baby, reading together isn't just about the experience of hearing the words out loud – it's also about the time spent physically close, the opportunity to explore colors and shapes and textures, and the art of discovery. And of course, for young babies, reading is also about one important activity: chewing on the book.

    Yup, that's right – putting things in their mouths is one way that babies learn about the world around them, so it's actually a good thing when your baby tries to munch on those pages while you are reading them. Instead of fighting it, just go with the flow and pick up some soft baby books that are safe for the occasional bite and probing little fingers.

    If you don't know where to start when it comes to reading to your baby, try incorporating a book into your nighttime routine. After a bath or change into pajamas, you and your little one can sit down and read a bedtime story. Outside of getting ready for bed, however, anytime is a good time for reading together – and these sweet, soft baby books will make story time even better.

    What to look for in soft baby books

    As you can tell from our choices above, many of the biggest, most famous titles in the history of children's books have been made into soft baby book editions – which means that you can start your search by looking for titles you enjoyed as a child or with your other children. Sharing books you love with your baby can make the experience that much more emotional and cozy, and can also help you endure the reality that you may be reading the same book over and over and over again. Picking stories you enjoy will make the readathons easier to do.

    With soft baby books, your little one will have the opportunity to really get into the book. But in all seriousness, even without words, soft books provide all the stimulation of traditional board books as well as fun additions for all the senses. Be on the lookout for plush toys, movable parts, mirrors, crinkle sounds, built-in rattles, and teething features. Some soft books are made of washable fabric, while others are made of wipe-clean plastic so they survive sticky fingers and can even go in the tub with you.

    No matter which book or books you choose for your child, sharing reading with your baby opens the door to a host of developmental milestones and a pathway to personal joy that will be there for your child their entire life. A soft baby book allows you to start this reading journey – with the peace of mind that the book won't be ruined by little hands or teeth.
