Last week I wrote a post about some preschool literacy activities I did for the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. My 3-year-old is still having a blast sorting the cookies on different colored plates and trying to match the number cookies with the number of chocolate chips. So I decided that every time we go to the library, there will be activities.
But I didn’t want to pick random books. Granted that you can never go wrong by reading to children. When all 3 of mine where newborns I would just read to them from whatever book I happened to be reading…or magazine. I would just read. You can do that with newborns.
Toddlers and preschoolers…. not so much.
Pictures are necessary for them in order to keep them engaged. Rhymes help develop their vocabulary. Their attention spans are limited so they need shorter books.
Thankfully, my library had a brochure set out in the children’s area to help.
It has a lot of my personal, Momma favorites like The Carrot Seed Board Book by Ruth Krauss, No, David! by David Shannon, and Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. -Links provided in case you want to add them to your personal library.
What books do you recommend for preschool-aged children?
