Any children or baby books that will be read to them when they are born. Or just say anything to them all the time. Sing, talk, read. The fetus can sense the mothers voice. You can sing or talk to your baby.

Studies suggest that babies at a certain stage of the pregnancy can hear nearly everything that goes on outside the womb and that they may be able to recognise the voice of their mother before they are even born. This is a great way to bond with the child before birth.

Here are some great recommendations for you:

The Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss
The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney
Mother Goose by Sylvia Long
Hush Little Baby by Sylvia Long
Chicka-Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr
Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson
The Gruffalo's Child by Julia Donaldson
Oh Baby, the Places You'll Go by Tish Rabe
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Mama Do You Love Me? by Barbara M. Joosse and Barbara Lavallee (has a father version, see below)
Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
Counting Kisses: A Kiss & Read Book Karen Katz

I also recommend:

Hello in there! by Jo Witek. For sister to baby.
Papa Do You Love Me? by Barbara M. Joosse and Barbara Lavallee.For father to baby.
I'm a Big Sister by Joanna Cole. For sister to baby.
What Brothers Do Best by Laura Numeroff. For brother to baby.
Once Upon a Baby Brother by Sarah Sullivan. From any sibling to baby brother.

Yes, you should read. Or talk. Or sing. Your baby's ears can hear you in utero, and they will recognize you by your voice after their birth. Talk as much as you can to it and you will bond faster.

Yes, there is no problem with reading a book of any kind to an unborn.

It may not necessarily be smarter but it will recognize your voice when it's born. The baby can hear you from the womb. It is comforted by your voice.

Most children can read simple picture books by age 5 (kindergarten). However, it's never too early to start. Read to your baby/toddler early on to instill a love of books.

You will have to read the books to find out!
