9 Books to Read Aloud to Your Unborn Baby

3 children's books

Try a new language or an old favorite

"The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh"

By A. A. Milne, illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard

I absolutely love the language in the Winnie the Pooh books. Milne knows how to narrate a story better than anyone I know. And the stories are so wonderful, you will enjoy reading them as much as your baby will enjoy hearing the sounds.

"The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred"

By Samathma Vamos, illustrated by Rafael Lopez

This bilingual book will introduce the sounds of both English and Spanish as you read this wonderful prose about a community of farm workers and animals who bring the ingredients for a rice pudding. The rhythm and sounds in this book are perfectly executed. As a bonus, you can make the recipe at the end and give you and your baby a wholesome dessert.

"Si Le Das Una Galletita a Un Ratón"

By Laura Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond

Sure you could read the English version of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, but this one is easy to read with just some high school Spanish and you can introduce your child to the sounds of a different language. If Spanish is not your thing, find this same title or another favorite in any other language you want to introduce to your child.
