It’s hot, hot, hot outside so stay cool inside with baby and a few of these adorable summer-themed books! We all know reading with your little one from day one is so important, so here’s to having a theme to get you started. Happy summer!

Baby Loves Summer!

We love lift-the-flap books and Karen Katz’s Baby Loves Summer will remind you why this season is so much fun!

Good Night Beach

The “Good Night” city series is one of our favorites, but this one and its beach theme is just perfect during a summer rental at the beach, or anytime really!

Mouse’s First Summer

Nothing better than celebrating summer with a picnic in the park and these two cute mice! A classic board book to introduce your baby to the many activities you can do during the summer. And don’t forget to bring this little mouse along to your next picnic, too!

Beach Baby

Beach Baby is literally made for babies — printed on non-toxic paper, these books really are indestructible! So baby can chew on them (and listen to the story) at the same time! The perfect book to read before baby’s first time at the beach.
