Does anyone have any recommendations about good books to read a one-year old before bed? Almost all of the books we have are just pictures with one word or maybe a sentence on each page. I looked on Amazon today for ideas, but the best selling books for ages baby-to-3yrs tend to be these same simplistic board books. (They are great in many ways, just not what I'm looking for in a bedtime book.)
We do have one Dr. Seuss book (The Cat in the Hat) that works well. It is a little bit text heavy, but if I point to various aspects of the pictures as I read, it seems to maintain Squeakles' attention.
What books does (did) your children enjoy at this age?
