Another vote for Dear Zoo, just simple enough and lift the flap.........Martha didn't really start listening properly to books like the Gruffalo until she was 18m/ 2 years.

I also loved Guess how much I love you, and anything that rhymes is good (giraffes can't dance was a favourite but again maybe older.)

We had a great little book called Peekaboo - "where's the baby - peekaboo!" which had lift the flaps for babies hiding behind bibs etc and she still will ask for that now from time to time.

I like it when.......with the penguins came in our bookstart pack, you should have got one at 8 months, check with your HV or local library if not.

Peepo and sometimes I like to curl up in a ball are our favs at the moment. Actually the only 2 she will stop and listen to!

Each Peach Pear Plum
A Squash and a Squeeze (by the same people as the Gruffalo)

Also some of the others mentioned on here, like the 'That's Not My...' ones and Peepo, Gruffalo, Gruffalo's Child etc.

I tried to get hold of my HV to ask about the Bookstart books but apparently they get given the first lot at 12 months now :(
