Our FAVORITE Books Right Now
April has been true to it’s form around here. Hopefully the showers will be bringing May flowers! With lots of rainy days inside we have been crafting, playing with EVERYTHING in the playroom, and reading tons and tons of books. We have been reading to our little ones since they were in the womb. We are both book lovers (although I haven’t made time for grownup books lately), and we have passed that love on to our children. I was fortunate to bring a pretty big children’s book library home from my classroom when I “retired” from teaching before Chickadee was born. And I’ve been adding to it ever since!
We read at night, in the car, waiting at the doctor’s office, rolling around the grocery store, and in the floor of the playroom. I’m convinced you can’t read enough to your children. It’s amazing how it builds their vocabulary, imagination, and attention span!
Right now Chickadee is 3 1/2 and Sprout just turned 2. I thought I would share some of our favorite books right now with you in case you are looking to expand your home library! You can find them all on Amazon (aff links). But I also suggest saving some money and search for them at Goodwill or rent them from your local library!
Thomas & Friends: Railway Rhymes
Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night
The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible
Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See
(This ins one of Chickadee’s Favorite because she can “read” it to Sprout)
My First Bible Stories – 12 Pack
This is just a short list, but I’m pretty sure most of these I can read from memory. I am sure as parents/care takers we get tired of reading the same books over and over, but the repetition is really great for you kids! What books would you put on a favorite’s list for your toddler?
Here are a few more MUST HAVES

I am familiar with most of these titles, and these are excellent suggestions.
I read many of these books so often that I know them by heart. One hilarious book that you can read to them is the Berenstein Bears Bike Lesson. A very good book for Chickadee is Madeline and Sprout will soon enjoy Richard Scarry books . In them, look for a character called Lowly Worm. I love that you are reading to your children. It is a priceless gift!
Great suggestions! We love Berenstein Bears and can’t wait for them to love Madeline & Richard Scarry :)
