The Best Board Books for Baby

A board book would be the perfect last minute gift for the baby in your life. Even the smallest baby will like to see the colors and will eventually enjoy exploring the book on their own.

Our Top 5 Favorite Board Books

4) Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton

3) Good Night New York City by Adam Gamble & Joe Veno
My little New Yorkers love this. There’s a number of different cities, so hopefully they have one that would be special for your family.
