Research shows that it is never too early to read your baby a book. While your baby might not understand the message you are trying to pass across, he or she can still begin to pick up the tones and rhymes of your voice. The more words a baby is exposed to the better prepared he is to eventually start reading on their own.

You do not want to give your child a voluminous book or they will lose their interest in reading altogether. Wordless, simple texts and rhymes should be considered for the younger babies.
You need also to consider whether the book appeals to your baby and how it does. The book should be catchy and fun to read out loud so they will always look forward to reading it. Babies are generally attracted to brightly colored texts.
