    Hi everyone - I have been asked to create stickies for threads with lists of book recommendations gathered from member posts for different age ranges (0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, 13+). Here is the thread for the 0-2 age range.

    Thanks Mark!

    I'll be curating this list and have included a dropbox link to a list updated June 5.

    Could everyone please list authors' names as surname, given name for ease of copying on my part. Thanks!

    Brad Meltzer's books for kids! DS 18mos LOVES I am Amelia Earhart and I am Albert Einstein. They are more for the right side of the 0-2 range and beyond. I find very few books that DS will sit and want me to read over and over again, but these are a couple he does seem to really like! Now, if there was just an I am Sally Ride book, I'd be ECSTATIC!

    Adding a link to a post in the thread Book recommendations: age 0-2, as that post includes books for age range 0-2 in addition to age range 3-5.

    The blog linked in that post also includes tips on how to inspire your children to become readers; Some of those tips begin at birth.
