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

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

    Adding a link to "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" early literacy challenge, which is a great concept, also a non-profit foundation, and an app:
    - https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/
    - https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/education/

    The tagline is: "Read it and Reap!"
    Printable sheets are provided, to log 1,000 books:
    https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/resources/

    The importance of reading to children from birth (promoted by Hart & Risley, based on research beginning in the 1960s) has been documented in several resources in the public domain, some of which are linked from the "1000 books before kindergarten" website. While a few of the links to government resources are now defunct, the excellent information is still available on the WayBack Machine, Internet Archive. For example:

    1) 8-page PDF file, Reading Tips For Parents -
    https://web.archive.org/web/20120628180844/http://www2.ed.gov/parents/read/resources/readingtips/readingtips.pdf

    2) webpage of SIMPLE STRATEGIES FOR CREATING STRONG READERS - https://web.archive.org/web/20120628174341/http://www2.ed.gov/parents/read/resources/readingtips/part_pg4.html#4

    Although a suggested reading list of 1000 books is not provided, there are links to local libraries across the US: https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/find-a-program/

    Families can accomplish the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten challenge, even when their local library does not offer a formal program: https://1000booksbeforekindergarten.org/facebook-posts/

    I recently put together a list of books for babies including bedtime stories, soft books, peek through books, and lift the flap books. They're my current favorites for reading with my 8 week old, but they'd be great for students up through pre-k/kindergarten too.

    I put together a list of my favorite books that I have been reading with my baby. The list includes bedtime stories, soft books, peek through books, and lift the flap books. Apologies for double posting; I forgot the link the first time! https://resources.njgifted.org/whats-on-noahs-bookshelf-books-for-babies/
