Harold and the Purple Crayonby Crockett Johnson
A wonderful first book for your baby, this wordless picture book is about a little boy with a purple crayon, and as he draws across the page the illustrations come to life. When I "read" this book to my babies, I saw their eyes following the purple line. It's still my favorite and occupies a prized place in my collection.
