Board books make it safe for your child to explore on their own, as well as with you!
Choose board books for your baby or toddler to explore. Look for a book where the pages flip up on their own when you open it.
DO IT TOGETHER!
You can leave board books out for your child to play with and explore, as well as sharing these books together by reading the words or talking about the pictures.
Young children use all their senses to explore new things, so don’t be worried if they chew on the books or are rough with them—board books are made for this.
Your child isn’t born knowing how to use a book. They need to be able to explore and play with books to figure out what they actually are and how to hold them and turn pages.
Good quality board books can stand up to whatever your small child will do to them, even if they are being rough.
