Even if your baby is only at the one year mark, it's not too soon to take advantage of books online. These are special books where baby can watch the images flip past and listen to you read or hear the audio books already recorded.
It's really hard to believe how early little ones want to be entertained in this way, even wanting to click the page themselves.
One of our very favorite book sites, with stories for little ones is ZiggityZoom.com. http://ziggityzoom.com/stories.php
You can even listen to the Curious Baby story with cute baby illustrations. http://ziggityzoom.com/onlinebooks.php?book=curiousbaby
