A picture book by any name would look as sweet.

Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the words, a gap that is filled by the reader's imagination, adding so much to the excitement of reading a book. - Anthony Browne
Picture books are for every reader. Every age and stage has one. Let's go over them.
I am soft, chewy, and yummy. Soft books make a perfect starter pack for a baby. Books typically made of non-toxic materials and are washable.
I’m your best friend. So let’s get wild because I’m tough. Books typically made of cardboard and can withstand rough handling.
Jump into the magical world of stories. Let’s hop, fly, and float with the characters. As the name suggests, the story pops by creating an enchanted feel. Younger kids must use pop-ups under parental supervision.
Touch and feel books
Let us cuddle a rabbit, make noise, and turn a wheel. Yes, it’s time for some action. Touch and feel books are great for simulating the babies’ senses. In addition, they are typically sturdy books.
What about numbers, shapes, and colors? To master the basics, dive in. Concept books can combine many of the above books. They are perfect to expose the kids to various ideas that are basic to reading and perceiving.
Easy reader books
I’m ready to go on my own. Let’s flaunt our flair and charm the world. Easy reader books are the first self-reading books with essential starter words.
Wordless picture books
I’m not saying anything, but I’m saying many things. First, while picture books themselves are fun, wordless ones are better. However, they may not be for very young children.
Let’s get real and cool. I’m the master of all. Non-fiction books cover a variety of educational topics for young children.
Go wild with your imagination and don’t stop reading.
