Try the library. I borrow books often for the kids, they are about the same age as yours. They have dedicated sections for babies and toddlers. 1 yr old: picture books with lots of colours, peek a boo flaps, shiny mirrors, few words per page. Hardcover type strongly advised as they WILL tear soft copy pages. 3 yr old: books with pictures and more engaging storyline, with characters to follow, e.g. 3 little pigs, hungry caterpillar etc. Soft copies possible but hardcopies may still be better if want to avoid damaging library books.

Library! Colors, shape books for 1 yr old. I like those hide and seek book, where u need to find certain things for the 3 yr old.

To save your cost, you can borrow books from library! Look for those big and colorful books! Read with them every night!;)

Whatever books interest them My boy was interested in a lot of cars, trains and dinosaurs He also likes adventure books

Bring them to library. Let them choose what they like and from there you can notice what kind of books they like
