I definitely recommend any of the children's books by Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Ten Rubber Ducks, etc. Great at any young age. They are simply illustrated with beautiful bold artwork that any child will love!! My Son adored them, those are the books that he still fondly remembers me reading to him, he is 9 yrs old now :)

I also read a whole lot of nursery rhymes, the rhythm is beautiful and soothing.  Surprisingly early, our son would put his foot out for the "little piggies" rhyme; he recognized it well before he could talk.  We would also do "the clock struck one --- bong --- the mouse ran down," and after I read it like that for a while, he would say the "bong" if I waited for it.

My little girl is 7 weeks but we do story time every night. Never too early for a routine. I agree with the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! We also read First 100 Words, books by Sandra Boynton (Barnyard Dance is cute), Disney Bedtime Favorites, and B is for Bear (touch and feel book).

How old of a child?  When he was an infant, my son liked "Big Red Barn," but largely for chewing.  By the time he was 3, he loved "Hush Little Digger."  Boy or girl?
