    My son's favorites at age one were:

    Squeak Rumble Whomp Whomp Whomp by Wyton Marsalis
    Anything by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Moon, The Big Red Barn...)
    Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You?

    His clear favorites were books that required the reader to make funny noises. Kids at that age love animal noises and silly sounds and rhymes. Most one year olds are not so much interested in the storyline just yet. I just read a very clever article all about how books like Jamberry increase something called phonological awareness, which help children develop their speech.

    I do a baby storytime at my library. I can tell you that anything with a tactile component is a big hit at that age. The Noodle books are awesome. This is a good one.

    Also, Sandra Boynton is great for toddlers. I really like this one.

    I like to get board books for little ones, because they can handle them without worrying about ripping pages. But if you want to get a bigger kid book, I love, love, love everything Mo Willems does. The Pigeon books and Elephant and Piggie are more for Pre-school aged kids, but he'll grow into them.

    Our favorite baby book is "Time for Bed" by Mem Fox.
    Also love "Can you see a Little Bear" by James Mayhew.
    Those ones are both rhyming and repetitive and have gorgeous illustrations so they are almost hypnotic for our little one at bed time.

    Kevin Henkes was my favorite author pretty much through toddlerhood. He does these adorable, and also pretty hilarious, books about mice that are too awesome. Julius, Baby of the World and Chrysanthemum are my favorites.
