Cuddle Up and Read

Cuddle Up and Read

Is there anything more fun than sharing a book with someone you love? It's especially fun – and beneficial – to share a book with babies and toddlers!

In a recent posting, The Canadian P​aediatric Society notes that "sharing books provides babies and children with warm and nurturing interactions with the adults they care about​" and that "children’s early experiences with books and reading help prepare them for school and set them up for success later in life." 

Just as importan​t, early exposure to language​ increases vocabulary and makes it easier fo​r children ​to learn to read later on​.

Check out our list of perfect "cuddle up and read" books below. 

Sophie's Big Beep Beep Book!

Our newest Sophie la girafe title is ideal for parents and kids to share. In this new adventure, Sophie thinks it's the perfect day for a walk, but her friends all want to drive! With delightful characters from the popular Sophie la girafe toy range, Sophie's Big Beep Beep Book! features a fun-to-read story, flaps to lift, and five exciting vehicle sounds: a fire engine, a race car, a tractor, a truck, and a car.

Roar! Roar! Baby Dinosaur

From the cracking sound of eggs hatching to the stomp, stomp of the daddy T. rex, toddlers will love hearing dinosaur sounds as they lift flaps to meet baby Triceratops, baby Saltasaurus, and more! This sturdy picture book is filled with noisy fun and features a rhyming dinosaur story that is perfect for reading aloud together.

Baby Touch and Feel Colors

With padded covers, simple images, and an amazing range of novelty textures, Baby Touch and Feel books capture the attention of very young children and create an experience they'll want to repeat again and again. This new title encourages the youngest book lovers to discover colors and shapes with touch and feel textures that they can stroke, tickle, and touch. Clearly labelled pictures help build a foundation for early learning, and textured elements will encourage tiny fingers to develop fine motor skills.

Baby Touch Your Nose!

One of the latest additions to our glittery Baby board book series, Baby Touch Your Nose! engages young babies with singsong rhymes and bright, colourful pages. The glittery tactile finger trails encourage pre-writing and fine motor skills, and the sturdy book pages are perfect for small baby hands.
