Types of Interactive Books for Babies and Toddlers

Interactive books tailored for babies and preschoolers encompass a diverse range of engaging formats, each designed to captivate young minds and nurture a love for reading.

Touch-and-feel books feature textured pages for sensory exploration, while flap books introduce an element of surprise as little ones lift flaps to uncover hidden images or text.

Sound books with buttons or touch-sensitive areas add an auditory dimension to the reading experience, while pop-up books create a visually dynamic and exciting storytelling adventure.

Interactive board books with tabs or lift-the-flap features encourage hands-on exploration, and interactive ABC and counting books make early learning enjoyable through movable parts and engaging elements.

  1. We had Peek A Who and Where’s Baby’s Belly Button. Also loved That’s Not My Puppy.

  2. I LOVE that you posted this! I get so excited buying my little girl books that I know she will love. There are a lot I haven’t seen that are in this list so I’m excited to go get some of them. Thank you!

    Our 1 yr old had a few of those books that you can “feel” and she absolutely loves them! Thanks so much for sharing at last week’s All my Bloggy Friends – Linda and I look forward to seeing what you share this week! 🙂

  5. We have a number of these books as well. The Heads, Tails, etc books are favorites in our house even now at two.

    Thanks for linking up at the Tuesday baby link up. Hope to see you back again this week.

  6. I love Dear Zoo and enjoy Sandra Boynton’s books although we came to them quite late. My daughter also loved the Baby Touch books from Ladybird.

    1. We still read Dear Zoo (and we’re actually on our second copy because my boys wore out the first).
