Some favorite baby books|

The top two on your list were two of our favs, too. Fun to see them.
Another two sent to us as favs of friends, that we came to love as well, were Ten Nine Eight (great counting backwards) and More More More, Said the Baby. Both culturally diverse, as well. And we love ALL the Boynton books. Keep them forever, too, as they are GREAT when kids start reading. Simple, repetitive, clear printing, pictures go well with the words. Jessie learned to read this year and spent a month doing nothing but reading them. And Doggies was a favorite, 'cause you get to bark like ten different kinds of dogs.
Geez, there's so many good books out there. Impossible to name just a few. We adored Dinosaur's Binket (another Boynton) and went through at least two copies.
Yes! We just red Ten, Nine, Eight at a friend's house last week, and it is indeed lovely. And friends gave us two editions of More, More, More, so I gave one to my niece for her kiddo, but now I'm missing it 'cause that was the board book version and much easier, physically, to read, since the paperpack you have to hold open with one hand while turning pages with the other and it doesn't stay open while you are picking up the baby to act out the story!
Rosie's favorite book this week is Hand, Hand, Fingers , which is the first book she's asked us to re-read four or five times a day.
