I strongly believe that the love for reading begins when a child is born. Reading time is also your special time with your child to cuddle, hug feel their warmth.
When looking for books for children ages 1 and 2 we need to consider their attention span. At this age they aren’t ready to sit down for long periods of time while you read aloud a story. They need books with thick pages, a few words that flow well, are easily memorized and something that resonates with something they might be feeling.
I always recommend that you buy board books for this age range because 1 year olds are trying to become more independent. They want to help you turn the page. There is nothing worse and demotivating than for a child to try to turn a page and then the whole page rips.
Little readers like books with moving parts, flaps to lift, bright colors, and things to touch.
I am sharing some of my favourite books for kids 1-2 years of age from T's collection of books.
Disney board books:
Colour and shape recognition :
Dr. Suess :
These books are always a keep sake. You can get lovely books on the weather, five senses and numerous other subjects.
Animal, insects, Vehicles books:
Kids love big illustrations. Buy them books on any of the above and they will love them.
Classic Books like Spot, Llama Llama Red Pajama, All the world , Little blue tractor, Eric Carle's books are like a treasure.

When your child is about 1.9 years old you can start introducing numbers and alphabet to him you get beautiful theme based books.
