At this age ANY book is a good book. Just read & read some more. Reading helps develop verbal vocabulary, instills the idea that reading is pleasurable, & will give them a head-start in reading on their own. Because an older infant is getting into grabbing, handling objects and mouthing objects, you may want to start looking into board books & books with interaction. Watch baby's attention span. If you're reading a longer book, don't feel the need to finish it if you see baby's gaze start to wander or baby fidgets. Books that rhyme or have repetitive strains are awesome for verbal development and pre-reading skills. Dr. Seuss & Eric Carle are both great places to start. When my kids were that age, they LOVED the book Tails by Matthew Van Fleet. He has several tactile, easy readers for toddlers. My son would drag that book out repeatedly even before he was a 1, hand it to me and say "read!"
