A Book My Toddlers Loves Is:
Carlo Likes Counting
By: Jessica Spaniel
It is a lovely baby mother book with beautiful drawings. It is simple
but very clever, there is a lot of attention to detail and in each
number page EVERYTHING is exactly that number, so you could always find
something new to discuss with your child. It has been my son's
favourite book for a long time and he doesn't seem to get tired of it.
My Big Number Box: A First Book of
By: Stewart Cowley
This book brings small number cards and my son loves to take them out
and put them in order. Although the drawback is that you have to be
careful not to lose any, but it does bring a special pocket to store
them. The illustrations are very nice too.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
By: Eric Carle
Beautiful illustrations, very clever book, kids could learn a lot of
things: days of the week, numbers and different food. My son especially
loved Saturday, with all that lovely list of food and he loved pointing
and screaming the names. A classic baby mother book!
By: Lorraine Horsley
A very simple but enjoyable book about cars, my son was crazy about it.
It encourages kids to talk about what is happening in a story, to learn
colours and numbers and to find a specific object. Very useful.
The Best Baby Book I Read was:
Sleep: The Easy Way To Peaceful Nights
By: Beatrice Hollyer and Lucy Smith
This is the best baby book I have ever read; it was a lifesaver for me.
It is short, very easy to read (the layout is great and there is even a
summary at the end of each chapter)and I just love the philosophy
behind it, not forcing things on your kids but following their rhythm
and building up on their own capabilities. I used this method with both
of my kids and it worked like a charm, they both slept through the
night since they were only about a month old and I was definitely the
envy of all my friends, as after that I NEVER ever had to wake up for a
midnight feed. I can't recommend it enough.
||What To Expect When You Are Expecting
By: Heidi Murkoff, Arlene Eisenberg & Sandee Hathaway
A classic baby mother book, extremely useful, especially a lot of
medical aspects covered. It was definitely my bedside table pregnancy
book. I did like the 9 month structure, but I would have preferred to
have more information about how the baby was growing and developing
||The Queen Charlotte's Hospital Guide to
Pregnancy & Birth
By: Adriana Hunter
This was a pregnancy week by week book, so I loved reading it every
week to know how the baby was growing and developing, fascinating! Not
the prettiest of books (some actual pictures instead of drawings would
have been nicer) but very useful medical information.
Baby Websites I Recommend:
has lots of information covering all stages, from conceiving, pregnancy
to childcare. Nice layout and simple to use. It is very nice to get a
newsletter covering your child’s age. They are very comprehensive and
cover a lot of issues not only for babies but also for mums. The advice
is given in a very nice and professional way and in no way makes you
feel they are being patronising.
Baby/Parent Magazine I Recommend:
Pregnancy & Birth (UK)
Informative and entertaining articles about everything pregnancy
