We have such a great giveaway from Smart Books for 4 books.
~Hello, Baby! From newborn to 6 months.
~What Does Baby Do? From 6 to 12 months.
~Splish-Splash From 12 to 18 months.
~One Two From 18 to 24 months.
My daughter loves these books! I really like how they are separated by months so they are not overwhelming. The pages are nice and thick for little hands to turn pages. The colors and the pictures really seems to keep her attention while I was reading to her.
I really enjoyed at the beginning of each book had a "Dear Parent" section with helpful hints about reading and learning.
"Reading aloud is the single most important thing parents can do to ensure their child's later reading success and set the stage for a lifetime of learning. Every Begin Smart book is reviewed by experts in the field of Early Literacy for content and age appropriateness."
Here is some information about the creator of Begin Smart:

For the past 25 years she has been writing books for young children. As an author, her main focus has been to create age-appropriate content, in an age-appropriate format — content that considers kids’ emotional and intellectual development together."
