Just because babies have a very limited grasp of language doesn't mean that reading to them is a waste of time. I've decided to use some of my free time with the baby reading educational books to her:
The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
The Art of War by Sun-Tzu
How to Build a Robot Army by Daniel H. Wilson
How to Rule the World: A Handbook for the Aspiring Dictator by Andre de Guillaume
I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri
Any suggestions to add to the list?
