Reading to your children is so important when it comes to their development! This post will focus on FUN books for toddlers that will keep your kids engaged!

According to a research study published by the Cleveland Health Clinic, reading to your children early on will boost vocabulary and reading skills before they enter Elementary school.

As an elementary teacher I have seen time and time again the LEARNING GAP that separates young kids in school. Reading is a practiced skill that should be reinforced in the HOME. Many benefits directly linked to reading include:

1. Mr. Brown can Moo Can You?

Mr. Brown Can MOO Can You? is a great way to keep kids engaged while you read to them!

Mr. Brown Can Moo How About You? By: Dr. Seuss is such a FUN read for little ones. Just like many Dr. Seuss books, this book is full of colorful illustrations and rhymes. The main idea of the book is to teach young children about sounds. Ranging from true sounds like doors “knock-knocking” and clocks “tick-tocking” to imaginary noises like a hippopotamus chewing gum “Grum-Grum-Grum”.

This book highly encourages kids to grow their own imagination just like the popular mind of Dr. Suess himself. My toddler loves this book and yours will to! I highly recommend purchasing this book in the Hard Cover form. This is one of many FUN books for toddlers!

2. Wipe-Clean Alphabet

Wipe-Clean Alphabet book is a great way for kids to learn the letters of the english alphabet!

Wipe-Clean Alphabet By: Osborne is another educational favorite. The major focus here is for young kids to learn and write the letters of the alphabet. Although writing the letters may be a little advanced for many young children, this book has successfully increased my child’s vocabulary tremendously.

The illustrations in this book are very simple but yet bright and vibrant to keep the young ones attention. The back of the book also displays all 26 letters of the alphabet (both capitalized and lowercase) which is great to point at as you sing the ABC’s. You will be surprised at how fast toddlers can learn their ABC’s with a clear image of each letter. This is one of many FUN books for toddlers!

3. Bedtime Favorites

Bedtime Favorites by Disney help parents keep fresh new stories available each night before their kids go to sleep.

Bedtime Favorites (3rd Edition) By: Disney is a great book to buy for the fact that there are so many stories compiled in 1 single book. Children love these short bedtime stories because of the familiarity of the characters within each short Disney story. From older classics like Lady and the Tramp to semi-new ones such as Tangled and Nemo each story has a clever bedtime tale.

This book has 18 different Disney stories within this single book just shy of 300 pages. Parents get their money’s worth with the amount of content that you get with this compilation. The illustrations are nothing shy of the spectacular Disney films that almost all kids love. This is one of many FUN books for toddlers!

4. Little Blue Truck

Little Blue Truck is a fun read that toddlers will love. It teaches many things such as animal noises and the importance of friendship.

Little Blue Truck By: Alice Schertle is one of my all time favorite books to read to kids. The main message of this book focuses on the importance of building powerful friendships. There are so many different sounds to make which keep toddler age kids engaged throughout the entire story.

This book is fun to read for parents as well. With the clever rhymes throughout the text you could literally sing your way through this book. (I only know because my husband raps the whole book! LOL) This book is a winner for sure! This is one of many FUN books for toddlers!

5. Counting Kisses

Counting kisses will help your kids learn many concepts like counting and improve vocabulary words.

Counting Kisses By: Karen Katz is great for small children. I would recommend this book for kids 1-2 years old. The main focus on this book is to help kids COUNT. This book will also help young toddlers learn different body parts such as toes, knees, eyes, nose, etc. After a few reads your child will look forward counting kisses from mommy. This is one of many FUN books for toddlers!
