UltimateMama LOVES books!  UltimateMama encourages you or your caretaker to read to your baby several times a day.  Not only is it good for bonding but also great for building their future vocabulary. 

Also, UltimateMama prefers Board Books for babies over paper books so that your child can enjoy the book by touching and turning the pages without the worry of messing up or tearing paper pages!

UltimateMama's top books for babies:

Fiona Watt and Rachel Wells's "That's Not My Bear…Its Nose Is Too Rough" is a fun "touch and feel" book that all babies will enjoy.


Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpiller" is a beautiful story with gorgeous illustrations. 


Sam McBratney's "Guess How Much I Love You" is a magnificent story about love and devotion. A story you will read again and again through the years.
