this year’s favorite reads: toddler edition

My two-year-old loves books.  I suspect he gets it from me [we established earlier this week that I read a lot of books] because his Dad mostly reads a lot of sports scores… and work email.  But every night before bed, the two of them settle into our big gliding chair and read bedtime stories.

great list of favorite books for toddlers!This is a list of our current favorites.  Check out these great books for toddlers:

  • Little Blue Truck Leads the Way.  I shared last year that Little Blue Truck was my son’s favorite book.  This is the next story in the series.  Just as good as the first!
  • Press Here.  My son loves to push buttons.  All buttons.  Like Buddy the Elf in the elevator.  This book is interactive and really clever.
  • Larry Loves Seattle.  Probably doesn’t have the same appeal for my non-Seattle friends, but it’s a favorite in our house.  Colin finds Larry on every page, demanding that we say ‘Larry’ every time he points.
  • Where’s Spot.  This lift-the-flap book is just as adorable as the chubby little fingers that turn each page.  It’s a little roughed up after lots of flap lifting, but this was one of my childhood favorites too.
  • We’re Going to the Farmers’ Market.  Gorgeous & colorful pages.  Colin loves to point to each vegetable and ask us to say the names.  I’m all for teaching kids about real food & farmers’ markets!
  • Five Little Fishes.  Cute counting book.  Colin loves it, but I try not to think too hard about why the little fish are disappearing [going to ‘play’ with a shark?]
