Reading material (for babies)

We discovered one of our baby's favourite books in a small West Sussex village called Steyning.  Tucked away at the bottom of the main shopping street is a white house which is actually an independent bookshop - Steyning Bookshop. At the back of the shop is a treasure trove of children's books and stylish greetings cards. This shop made me long for the days of high street bookshops as so many independents have disappeared due to the boom in online buying. It was at this bookshop that I spotted Space Walk. It's a simple hardback book comprising bold shapes and colours exploring the planets of the solar system. Even though I knew our daughter was too little to understand, I decided to buy the book anyway and to start reading it to her. It's been a huge hit. She spots it across the room and her eyes light up when we open the first page.  I have since bought this book for other friends with babies as we just love it so much. We have a collection of books which we read to her to get her in the mood for sleep. Here are some of our favourites: 

Space Walk - Salina Yoon

Deep Sea Dive - Salina Yoon

Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown

Where's Spot - Eric Hill
