I’m sure you already know that reading to your baby, even while pregnant, is a vital part of healthy child development. That’s why I suggest creating a beautiful reading space as early as possible will give you a jump start on bonding and connecting to your child. Creating a space that allows you to spend some quiet time alone with your unborn child will prepare him or her for their new living arrangements on this side of their world.
Imagine creating an inviting and welcoming reading nook where you can relax with your baby before you go to bed. Sit in a comfy rocking chair where your favorite infant books are just an arm reach away. Developing this habit during your pregnancy will make the transition to bedtime for your newborn more familiar and relaxing. Your unborn baby will enjoy the sound of mama’s voice and will remember this special place where the two of you met before he/she entered this new world and mommy’s arms.
To start you in the right direction I am including the Top 10 Best Books to Read to Baby. I suggest you build baby’s library with this list of great books and then add new ones to the library as the baby develops. In addition to this list of books, I will be sharing with you my number one best book. This is the book I read to my two little boys every single night for years!

Now that you have your library started, let’s see if we can create a special space for it! (Helpful Hint: Ask your friends who attend your baby shower bring books instead of cards. They can have special message written inside just for baby and to place it in your already created library)
The most important thing to remember about creating your reading nook space is that it is YOUR space! Make sure it reflects you because that is what makes it so special and comfortable. The simpler the space the more functional it will be when it’s time for your little one to go to bed.
