I saw a blog entry this weekend and it got me thinking that I would compose my own list of top book picks for 2-5 year olds. We love reading over here and my daughter just loves being read to…just like most other little people her age.
Here are some books that we love and that I
think know that your little person will love too.
The Very Hungry Catepillar by: Eric Carle
This book is one of our favorites. It helps kids learn and solidify the concept of numbers and counting. Not to mention, we love Eric Carle books anyway. The illustrations seem to “pop” off the page.
I Love My Hair! by: Natasha Tarpley
This read teaches kids to embrace who they are and the value of self-acceptance.
My (First Read and Learn) Book of Prayers by: Dr. Mary Manz Simon
Train a child in the way that they should grow and when they are older they will not depart from it. These prayers are simple and appropriate to be used in most everyday situations.
Only One You by: Linda Kranz
I love this book. Clearly written by an art lover, this book illustrates the value of teaching kids to love themselves in their uniqueness. A virtue that is so important to instill even in the life of a 2 year old.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by: Eric Carle
We absolutely love this one around our house. The repetition and use of colors and naming of animals helps to solidify concepts that are at the genesis of learning.
By the way, today is the last day to get guaranteed delivery for Christmas through Amazon. You may even get free shipping if your order qualifies.
Either way, these are great books to add to any toddlers library.
