Our grand daughter loves Moo Moo brown Cow
Count with Maisy
and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See
and we enjoy reading them to her.
I think the Bright and Early for Beginning Beginners series of books is good. Many basic Dr. Seuss, Berenstein Bears and others. Some are the Eye Book, Foot Book, Nose Book, Hand Hand Finger Thumb, Ear Book, In A People House, Dr. Seuss's ABC, The Tooth Book......
When my son was 1 he loved a NFL opposites board book, Sheep In a Jeep and the Bellybutton Book.
Some of our favorites over the years that I am holding on to for grandkids (if my kids don't destroy them first) are:
1) DK Touch and Feel books. My kids LOVE touch and feel books. My 6 year old seems to enjoy them enjoys as much as my 9 month old.
2) Sandra Boyton books. They're silly, easy to read, have great illustrations, and teach something.
3) Matthew Van Fleet books have touch and feel and teach something. A favorite is "One Yellow Lion" that is a fold-out book with numbers, colors, and animals.
4) Baby Einstein books. I especially like the one on art.
5) Eric Carle books. "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is a classic as is "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You Hear?"
6) I Spy Little Books
7) Holiday books by Nancy J. Skarmeas (like The Story of Valentine's Day)
By the way, I have a bunch of board books listed and am offering a 3 for 2 deal.
My boys have always loved Barney. Something about that big purple "dino?" Anyway, they are now old enough that the books are no longer of any use to us. I have 4 of these books posted and I also have 2 VHS barney tapes. You can have all 4 books and 2 videos for 2 credits. If your interested, please PM me.
I absolutely love John Archambault's books. They have great rhyme and rhythm that captivates the littlest listeners, and they're great fun to read aloud.
Hope this helps!
