Our little girl, not yet age 2, is an effective communicator. She lets us know exactly which books she likes, and which ones will waste her precious time. Here are our selective toddler’s picks for books to read again and again (and again)… we have a lot of similar board books for toddlers on our bookshelves, but those get discarded in favor of this collection.
It’s 100 pictures (I’m only assuming here, I’ve never actually counted) and words, so there is not a real compelling storyline. However, for a toddler, it’s endlessly entertaining to flip through pointing out faves like “big airplane” and “ball.”
This book is fantastic for anyone who loves design – each page features a color with the pantone colors on one side and an object on the other. The descriptive color names like pumpkin orange, pepperoni red, and rubberband pink will also jog creative inspiration in writers, too! We’ve had to buy this one twice after the first one fell apart after enthusiastic overuse.
Supercool little books with cut-outs, all in various Pantone shades. These were perfect for church, until she started announcing all of the objects on each page instead of silently flipping through the books.
Both of our kids loved this book. We’ve had to buy three of them. Definitely invest in the large board book.
A series featuring babies dressed up, and a page that flips out, and a lot of Peekaboos! We have several. All are popular.
I don’t totally understand the fascination with this one, but she is emphatic about reading it on repeat. Baby says “Peekaboo I see you” every other page.
Because, who doesn’t love the very hungary caterpillar? He eats a lot, plumps up, then turns into a beautiful butterfly without having to crash diet. Yay!
Obviously, our daughter is artistic since she loves both of these artsy Eric Carle books.
