Books I Should Read With My Baby Girl

If you follow my blog or follow me on social media, you probably already know that I’m pregnant. I’m 20 weeks pregnant of our first baby and it’s a baby girl. And we are over the moon. If you are pregnant, or have been pregnant you know that your energy levels aren’t the same as before your pregnancy. And I’ve definitely been experiencing this. But it’s all worth it, and sometimes you just have to ask for a little help.

As a reader and book blogger I can’t wait to start reading to and with my baby girl. But since browsing the bookstores isn’t really happening at the moment I need your help. My baby girl definitely will have to have books and reading time in her life. But what books do I have to get? Which baby books should I definitely read? And which one should I not buy? I already have a view books, some in Dutch and some in English (I'll post them down here), but obviously I’ll have to get more. 

So which book would you recommend I have to read to my baby? Let me know and I’ll make a list down here with all the books I’ll have to get. Maybe another mama will find it helpful too. ;)


  1. We loved reading the Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler books.
    I don't think there's a single one we didn't enjoy but The Gruffalo, Highway Rat, Snail and the Whale and Tabby McTat were the favourites that we read to our son long before he had a clue. We made it part of his bedtime routine from around 6 months and he was a fantastic sleeper. ;)

    We continued with the reading as he got older and fell in love with so many wonderful stories... He's 7 now and still reads with me but he also loves having a chapter of an audiobook at bedtime.

    Enjoy the reading time with your little girl when she arrives. Those snuggly pre-bedtime reads are some of my favourite memories. :)

    1. Thanks for the suggestions. I did hear some great things about The Gruffalo. But I haven't heard about those other ones. I definitely need to check them out.
      I can't wait to start reading with my little girl. I already love picking out books for her.
