List Rules Only board books appropriate to read to toddlers and older children

What are the best board books for your little ones when they're toddling? Which books keep them engaged? Which books have the giggle factor? Does your toddler prefer to gnaw on Sandra Boynton or Dr. Seuss? Board books for toddlers are printed on thick, sturdy paperboard that holds up to throwing, chewing, and helpful hands turning the pages. Colorful images and simple, delightful stories keep 1-2 year olds interested at bedtime, sure to ask for their favorites again and again.
