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.

Soft Books

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.

Board Books

I’m your best friend. So let’s get wild because I’m tough. Books typically made of cardboard and can withstand rough handling.

Pop-up books

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.

Concept 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.

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.

Non-fiction books
