Q: What are some good picture books for baby boys?

  • While there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing books for baby boys, there are a few factors to keep in mind. First, look for books with lots of bold, bright colors. Babies are drawn to high contrast images, so books with lots of black and white or primary colors are typically a hit. Second, choose books with simple stories and plots. At this age, babies have a short attention span and won’t be able to follow a complex narrative. Finally, look for books with textures or other interactive elements. Babies love to touch and feel, so books with crinkly pages or built-in squeakers are often a big hit. With these criteria in mind, here are a few picture books that are sure to be a hit with baby boys: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle, “Paddington Bear” by Michael Bond, and “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr. Seuss.
