My sweet baby just turned one a few weeks ago — and she is always on the move. She wants to be walking or climbing whenever possible, and it’s becoming more challenging to get her to sit still for storytime.

In order to make things a little more fun and to keep her interested in reading while her physical development is in hyper-drive, I’ve turned to interactive books.

By offering something she can touch, a surprise pop-up, or an intriguing sound, these eight books hold her attention and keep her coming back for more. Try them and see whether they grab — and keep! — the attention of your little runner, too.
