Does it matter what books I read to my one year old? Can i read anything or does it have to be children's books?

Id say anything you feel comfortable reading to your LO. It all helps build their vocabulary and understanding.

Reading to a child period is a great way to help build vocab and stimulate their imagination. Keep it up mama!!

Are you reading Shakespeare ?! Lol. Jk. I'd say little kids books with few words and that was u can point to the words as you read kids are visual learners. The more you do that the easier he will pick up reading and recognition.

I would say a book with pictures in it, so your LO stays interested. But that's just my thought.
