I’ve got a cat named Bob, and a dog named Bob, and two fish called Bog and Bob…

Dear Zoo

There is not a toddler alive who isn’t fascinated by the zoo and the animals in the zoo, which may be one of the reasons Dear Zoo is so popular. The book is also popular because it allows toddlers to interact with the book, as it is a lift-the-flap book. Toddlers love doing things for […]

The Snowy Day

The Snowy Day is an award-winning book that is nearly 60 years old. It features a boy, Peter, who goes out to play in the snow after the first snowfall in his city during the winter season. Keats’ illustrations are breathtaking, and the words he uses help children to see and hear the snow, and […]

Goodnight, Moon

Over 70 years old now, Goodnight, Moon has remained an extremely popular book for parents and children. We love this book, because it is a great way to wind down the day with your toddler. If you are having trouble getting your toddler to settle down for bedtime–and for your much-needed rest–this is a great […]

More, More, More Said the Baby

If you are looking for multicultural books for your toddler, this is a wonderful book. The book is actually three small stories about the love parents have for their children. Vera Williams is a brilliant illustrator, and her pictures allow children to feel all of those warm, loving feelings you want them to feel, especially […]

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Let’s be honest–finding just one book to put on the list written and illustrated by Bill Martin and Eric Carle was extremely difficult. Eric Carle is loved the world over for his illustrations, because they are unique and colorful. This book also covers animals–which all toddlers love–and has a great rhyme scheme. Rhyme schemes are […]

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Another Dr. Seuss book that is exceedingly popular with toddlers, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish has Seuss’ great rhymes, and also throws in counting for good measure. Since toddlers are learning how to count, and how each number of an object has to be counted, they’ll love counting in this book. Also, […]

Green Eggs and Ham

No toddler (or grown-up, in my case) top 10 list would be complete without a book or two by the master, Dr. Seuss. We’ve included two of his most popular books for toddlers. The first book, Green Eggs and Ham, has been bought over 8 million times around the world since it was first published […]

Moo, Baa, La, La, La!

Books 2

This Sandra Boynton book was written during the same time period as But Not the Hippopotamus and has been very popular as well. The book uses a rhyme scheme and animal sounds to create a very entertaining book. If you have a young toddler that is just beginning to learn that not all animals are […]
