My daughters favorite book was she was itty bitty was:

 

In the Tall, Tall Grass
Author: Denise Fleming

 

She made me read it so many times, it fell apart. :)  

 

(and get the big size, it makes it feel more real for them ;)  )

My son liked Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and the board books by Sandra Boynton.

Any thick "cardboard" paged hard book is great for babies. They may chew on them when teething, but if it is read over and over to them, it will become a favorite for them and kept as a keepsake or heirloom book for when they grow up and have a child.

I second Good Night Moon.  It is not new but such a classic. My kids loved it and now my grandkids. When my kids were young when we would leave the house, we'd say. Good bye house, good bye mouse, good bye to the bowl of mush, and good bye to the old lady who whispered hush, (which they would whisper). So many fond memories.

I'd stick with the classics -- Goodnight Moon (get the board book version) and Pat The Bunny.

Love the Roger Priddy books, very colorful, recognizable pictures and the books are sturdy and affordable.  For a lap story "All the Places to Love" by Patricia MacLachlan of Sarah Plain and Tall fame

Oh! I finally remembered my daughter's other favorite book:

 

Animal Sounds (Golden Sturdy Book)
Author: Aurelius Battaglia

I don't know if you've purchased a book or not or whether you are still interested, but here's my idea. With my children the best books I got were plastic books that were cushy. They could take them in the bath and also gum them. Lol. If I hadn't given them away they would still be here. They are indestructable and don't fade. They are easy to wash with a sponge and even disinfect them with bleach or Lysol. I loved them. There are many on the market.

I hope the link works. If not I will correct it.

Good luck! smiley

Boston, the "Llama Llama" books by Anna Dewdney are wonderful--especially read aloud to little ones. Plus they give soothing comfort and tiny lessons:

For instance, in "Llama Llama Red Pajama", the little llama learns not to be scared to be by himself in his room at bedtime: "Llama, Llama red pajama, waiting waiting for his mama. Mama isn't coming yet. Baby Llama starts to fret."

Then, in "Llama Llama Misses Mama", he tackles his first day of preschool: "Strange new teacher, strange new toys. Lots of kids and lots of noise!"

There are more of the Llama Llama books, but I wanted to give you an idea of what they are all about.

Pat the Bunny.  Get the big cardboard pages.  It has things to feel, as well as read.
