These Books Will Make Your Kid Smarter

Bethenny is really big on reading to Bryn — and now there’s another reason to spend a while turning pages with your little ones, other than the quality time:

A brand-new study shows that picture books without text can actually help toddlers develop more complex language skills than reading a book with words, since you’re verbally interacting with what’s on the page. Think: “What is the bear doing? Where is he going next?” The upshot: They’re more prepared for school and to develop better reading skills, which is always a good thing!

We rounded up a few of our favorite illustration-heavy books — many of which have won big-deal awards — so you can reap the brain-building benefits for your babe!

I will have to check these books out. I had never heard of them. One of my favorites that I like to read to my daughter before she goes to bed is The Napping House.
