Architecture Books for Babies, Really?!?!?

Oh yeah….

All of my Architecture Friends keep producing baby Young Architects, faster than you can pass all your exams.  Ouch… JK, I love you.

Here is a curated list of 15 Architecture Books, so we can start getting those newborns thinking about the design and the built environment.


Before you send me a long-winded email, about forgetting some very key architecture books for kids. I want you to know that I have written several other blog posts for architecture related gifts and toys for children.

Yes, I there are some AMAZING books that are not reflected on this list, because they were previously mentioned in the other blog posts.
