  • I love James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series, however, I would not recommend reading that to a one year old. For her, I would probably stick to picture books, because she is going to pick up a lot more if she is able to see pictures and be able to learn that the picture of a horse and the word horse go together.

  • yeah she has a few of the picture books i am hoping to buy her the collection of dr seus books because i loved them. when i was pregnant with her i read a lot and now i noticed if i read out loud anything she sits still and listens to me its amazing watching how focused she gets. but i'll look into the james patterson's series i'm always looking for new things to read i want her to also have a love for reading like i do. her favorite book thats also a picture book is her how many kisses book especially when her grandpa reads it to her when he hasn't shaved lol.

  • I love the Harry Potter series, but that's probably a little too dark for a one year old. So is the Twilight Saga. I don't really read series, except for those two, so good luck. :)
