We just adore the Eric Carle books and have a nice library of them. I prefer the sturdy, hardback ones and I always keep them low on a shelf right at eye level for my kids to pull out whenever they want. My toddlers love pulling them out and looking at the pictures and pretending to “read” them. They will quickly learn the names of the animals and colors just by being read aloud to on a regular basis.
