Bookworm Basics: Books for Reading Fun (0 to 5)

If you're looking for books to start a children's library at home, these are some of the titles that you might want to consider. This collection of stories can be shared any time, but with an active child, are probably not your best choice at bedtime. All of the books on this list are stories our kids love - so it's their opinion (not the "experts") that got them added to this list. NOTE: Whenever possible, opt for board books first, then hardcover. This audience is tough on books and you want your investment to last!

"Anthologies make a great choice when you want lots of stories but don't have lots of money. For a similar reason, it is also nice to have when you're traveling, too. One book = lots of stories This particular volume has lots of children's favorites."
