As a first time mum, I'm always looking for tips and advice on the best things to buy Knox. So, I've compiled a list, with the help of my trusty Mummy following on the best books for babies under 1.

Reading is such an important part of your daily routine with your baby. Not only is it fantastic for bonding but, it encourages your baby to build their memory, vocabulary skills and listen. With so many creative books on the market, it's a fun way to introduce numbers, letters, colours and shapes. The more you read to your baby, the easier they will take to talking and developing their communication skills.

1. That's not my...

In first place, because I don't think there was one person that didn't mention them, the 'That's not my...' range. Filled with bright pictures and textures to stroke the 'That's not my...' range are designed to help develop sensory and language awareness.

2. Dear Zoo & Oh Dear!

Two fantastically engaging pop-up books by Rod Campbell, Knox reads these on repeat. He loves to find his favourite animal in all books, so speedily flicks past until he finds the prize. A Dog, not the eggs in the case of Oh dear!

3. Giraffe's can't Dance

Giraffe's can't Dance, the no.1 best seller is filled with beautiful illustrations and a beautiful story to match. Knox is obsessed with Giraffe's, so I literally judged the book by it's cover and bought it, but it has so much more to offer.

4. George's Racing Car

A book from the 'Peppa Pig' collection, 'George's Racing Car' was alway's going to be a hit. With enthusiastic narration & noises from me, this has to be Knox's all time favourite book. The vibrant illustrations have the same effect as the TV show, keeping us entertained for numerous rounds of reading.

5. Guess How Much I Love You

A true classic with sweet illustrations and a heart warming story 'Guess How Much I Love You' is a wonderful gift to any new baby. Perfect for evening reading whilst snuggling in with your newborn, even the coldest of hearts will be melted.
