Anything else similar?

Mine LOVES the Spot books, especially the ones where there are flaps for her to flip.

Each Peach Pear Plum
The Baby Who Wouldn't Go To Bed
Lift the flap books - mine loved Dear Zoo (but I hated it)

Those "That's not my..." books were popular here, after Spot and Dear Zoo.

Ditto to Stick Man. DD1 also likes The Snail and the Whale. I think because it flows so beautifully and there is so many things to point at. The illustration is fantastic.

1yr might be only suitable for picture books, And these books might be suitable: Open the Barn Door
Where Is Baby's Birthday Cake?: A Lift-the-Flap Book
Dear Zoo: A Lift-the-Flap Book
Where Is Baby's Belly Button? A Lift-the-Flap Book

The Hungry Caterpillar
The Bad Tempered Lady-Bird
Hairy MacLeary books - and SLinky Malinki (the black cat rival)
These last two are very sing-songy and I often found myself wanting to sing them to my then 1 yr old. blush

Wobble bear says yellow. DD who is also 1 likes books that make noises and lift the flap books.

My DD (13months) loves anything touchy feely or that makes noise! Current favs are the touchy feely version of Dear Zoo, any of the 'That's not my...' books, and a 'Tchoupi' book she got from her cousins in France (there is button to press on each page that makes a noise). Another massive favourite is a fabric, lift- the -flap alphabet book from a company called 'Fun to Learn'.

Brown bear, brown bear what do you see? Toddle waddle. Busters farm my ds's favourite books

Agree with a lot of the above, also want to add Max and Millie series. There's a food one, bedtime, going to school, getting dressed and new baby. Quite short but my dd really got them and copies what max and Millie get up to.
