My one-year-old and I are reading every board book at our local library. For more about this project, check out this post.

Because of the holidays, we haven’t read many library books this week. Next week we’ll be back with more reviews, but for now I want to share with you our five favorite board books that we own. Any one of these would make a great gift, so check them out!

1. Tails by Matthew Van Fleet

Pull tabs, lift flaps, touch textures, and more as you read about different animal tails. This is the best interactive book I’ve ever seen, and my toddler adores it. We read this every night and multiple times throughout the day.
Buy on Amazon

2. Max the Brave by Ed Vere

Max is a brave kitten who chases mice. But what does a mouse look like? Maybe it’s this giant monster-shaped creature! A hilarious story and bright colors combine to make this book lots of fun.

3. Baby Peekaboo (Indestructibles) by Amy Pixton, illustrated by Kate Merritt

This isn’t exactly a board book, but it counts. It’s made out of nontoxic, rip-proof material, and it can be washed in the dishwasher or washing machine. Baby can throw it, chew it, tear it, and shake it, and it’ll still hold up. This whole series is great, but Baby Peekaboo has been my son’s favorite.

4. Rocket Science for Babies by Chris Ferrie

Complex concepts, explained in simple terms. The art in this series is very basic, but my son enjoys looking at it.
Buy on Amazon

5. Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering by Ruth Spiro, illustrated by Irene Chan

Similar to the above series, these books explain complex science in toddler terms. This series focuses more on examples and less on scientific concepts, but the art is much more elaborate and colorful. Check them both out!

See you next week with more reviews!
