When the question is asked 'how early should you start reading to your children?', there's only one answer - as early as possible. With the choice of books available in your high street bookstore or online, it is easy to find something your little one will love and have you reading it over, and over, and over again. Or visit your local library where you will find you're most welcome to spend an hour or two, especially with those libraries who provide toddler toys and playgroups, as well as popular books.  Look out for 'pop up peekaboo' books - babies love these, along with noisy books which are a great introduction to some of the most enduring reading and picture books. Some of the most popuar are The Tiger Who Came To Tea, The Gruffalo, Guess How Much I Love You and What The Ladybird Heard, and many, many more.
