Dd is 16 months and she loves Where is Baby's Mommy? and What Does Baby Say? Both are "lift the flap" board books by Karen Katz. She LOVES them. She brings them to us all the time with a big smile on her face. We've read them so many times that she's starting to memorize them. They are great books like that--very repetitive, so they can "teach" early literacy skills like memorizing and pretending to read.

Another Nov '05 DD here!<br>
She also loves any Boynton board books, and Goodnight Moon, too. Any of the type of board books which have photographs of real babies, instead of drawings. Green Eggs and Ham, but I can't read all the words!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
The Napping House. Goodnight Gorilla. Some of the Richard Scarry books, the ones with more pictures than words.<br>
Have fun!<br><br>
(I get the ba-OOO!! too! Also, Muh! Muh! for moon!)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Right now my 19 mos old dd loves the Spot lift-the-flap board books. She wants to read those 10 times a day.

Forgot to mention Courderoy, by Don Freeman. It's a sweet story and my young toddler can follow it, and it still appeals to her older brother too.
