5 Great Books for Young Children

This is Read Across America Week so we have books on the brain! We know our clients value reading to their kids so we have compiled a list of some of our favorite children’s books.

1. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
This is a great book for even the youngest little ones.  All the alphabet letters climb up the Chicka Chicka Tree and eventually all fall off the tree. Babies will love the bright colors and toddlers and preschoolers will love the sing-song rhythm of the text.

2. Knuffle Bunny
Toddlers and preschoolers alike will identify with the main character of this story. She and her dad take a trip to the Laundromat and, on the way home, she realizes she has lost her beloved Knufflebunny! She’s still struggling with expressive language so she becomes frustrated as she tries to tell her Dad and he just doesn’t get it (for awhile, anyway). Any child who has ever lost a lovey will love this book.

3. Feast for 10
We love this book for many reasons.  It’s a great way to talk about counting and number identification.  Even better, it shows a beautiful family out shopping together. The end shows everyone preparing for the feast and enjoying a meal together.

4. Pete the Cat : I Love My White Shoes
Pete the Cat is everywhere these days and is the star of several books. Call us traditionalists but you just can’t beat the original. Pete steps in all kinds of things resulting in his shoes changing colors on each page. If your child is learning about colors, this is a great book.  This is another book with great rhythm and bright colors.

5. Rhyming Dust Bunnies
This book is one hilarious way to have some rhyming fun. Kids love being “surprised” every page where Dave, that rascal, does indeed NOT come up with a rhyming word to his dust bunny counterparts.

We hope you enjoy reading this books with your little ones of all ages. Children will love spending time with you and cuddling in your lap while you read. We can’t think of anything more precious.

As Pete the Cat would say, “It’s allllll good.”
