A baby and big brother figure out how to get along.
The Pittsburgh Ready project links the Library with childcare providers to share robust early literacy resources. Opportunities for space improvements, storytime visits, professional development and family engagement are underscored by quality giveaway books for children and their childcare providers.
From Fall 2019 to Spring 2021, babies enrolled at childcare providers participating in Pittsburgh Ready took home a copy of each title on this list. And each childcare provider received a copy of the book to build their collection for babies for years to come!
If you are looking for a wonderful title to share with a baby, check out some of the titles on this list. And don’t forget to explore our archive of Best Books for Babies Booklists for additional baby book suggestions.
