Our favorite books!
I didn’t title this post as ‘My kids’ favorite books’, but used the word ‘our’ as I love browsing, buying, reading and re-reading children’s books!
This is a list I put together when I undertook a massive book roundup (thanks to a little nudge by Asha!).
So all of these books are as old as my daughter who is 6 years old, and they are thoroughly enjoyed by her, my 3 year old son and me of course!
A few of them work well for special reasons and need a separate mention. I found them helpful and suggest you keep them handy.
Books for tantrums:
Toddler tantrums are a common thing in every house. I found reading books on toddler tantrums very helpful.
My Big Shouting Day: When your kid has been in a bad screaming mood, it’s apt. Be sure to read it then!
Sing along and act along books:
Very important to encourage kids to express themselves.
Wriggle and Roar: By our favourite children’s author, Julia Donaldson, this one is a riot. It’s made up of very colorful illustrations and super cute rhymes. We love reading singing and acting them out.
The only reading ritual I have with both my kids is reading to them at night. I will blog about that later on. But it has helped us three immensely as a “we activity” we all look forward to every night! And it has made them better readers. I really recommend bedtime reading to everyone.
Our Toddler favorites:
So while the kids enjoyed being read to these books as toddlers, they now serve as my 6 year old daughter’s first reads. She reads them aloud to herself or to me. I call them the reading practice books now!
All time favourites – any time reads:
These books are simply amazing. Period. Everyone must have a few Julia Donaldson books in their collection at home.
Reading with Actions & Drama:
Good Phonics Books:
