Best Book for Babies 2017

May 3, 2017

Every year librarians and child development experts come together for one very important reason: to agree on the best new books for babies. Check out the list below to expand your budding little book lover’s library.

For the last seventeen years the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has been collaborating with The Fred Rogers Company and the Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children to compile an annual list of the best new books for babies. The criteria includes clear, easy to understand words and pictures, and short narrative length, as well as easy to grasp and manipulate board book pages. The books that make the list are targeted to babies birth to 18 months old.

Here is the brand new selection for the 2017 list of books:
