Fun Children’s Books to Read

For Mother’s Day I got a poem from my oldest and one of the lines read, “I love to hear mom listen to me when I read.” Children love to read to you and listen to you read. Nothing is better than snuggling together and reading a good book.  Sometimes it feels like you are reading the same books over and over and want some fun new books to be a part of reading time. A great way to try new books is to visit your local library or do a book swap with friends!

Here are some fresh book  ideas for you:

Pinkaliscous by Elizabeth and Victoria Kann

Any Dr. Suess Books

Ducks Don’t Wear Socks by John Nedwidek

Pete the Cat by James Dean

Leo the Lightening Bug by Eric Drachman

The Ugly Pumpkin by David Horowitz

Here Comes the Big Mean Dust Bunny by Jan Thomas

Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas

The Dog House by Jan Thomas

The Pigeon Books by Mo Willems

Llama llama Books by Anna Dewdney

Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner

These are just some of the favorites I have to share. Another key is to listen to the audio version if it is available. While visiting preschool the other day, my son’s teacher was reading Pete the Cat, Rocking in my School Shoes and had the CD playing along. There was great music that went along with it that the kids danced too.

What are some fun books that you like to read with your child?
