Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and other similar Bill Martin books.
My son is just about 5 months old and will totally tune into on these books (has since about 3.5 months). I think because the images are big, simple and colourful (Eric Carle is the illlustrator) and the prose is repetitive.
I'm a teacher (and was a teacher-librarian) and found that most children love these books up to age 6 or 7.

Have you got the dvd? It is fantastic, true to the books, makes a great change from the usual kids dvds and it made Leorah even more crazy for the books!

We really like "Where is the Green Sheep?" by Mem Fox
She wrote "Time for Bed", which is cute too.

The that's not my... And peek a boo DK books go down well here but I worry they're too babyish now, he's 15 months and we've had some of them for nearly a year. Any suggestions which are particularly good for 18-24 months?

My 10 month old loves bath books - I looks for books that have a rhyme or aliteration, or ones that you can sing. She has a bath book called 'Katie the kitten' and she loves it when I emphasize the rhyme and the two 'k' sounds. Also - I'm not a lover of singing but she loves music so I bought a nursery rhyme book that plays the music as you read. It has Baa Baa Black Sheep, Hickory ory, Humpty Dumpty and Twinkle Twinkle little star - all classics and the whole book can be read in about 15 mins. She's beginning now to turn pages and trying to press the buttons for the music - and they do say that nursery rhymes are good for the old IQ!

My five-month-old daughter LOVES Chicka Chicka Boom Boom ABC.  It has captivated her since she was only a couple of months old.  The pictures are big, graphic and bright, and the rhyme is fantastic.  I sing it when she's upset and it almost always gets a smile.
