Reading to your child is one of the best things you can do. They are listening even if they are up and moving around. Toddlers need to be active as it’s one of the ways they learn about their world. Now that summer has arrived here are my five favorite summer reads for preschoolers.
SUMMER by Alice Low – All the wonderful things that summer brings.
THE SNOWY DAY by Ezra Jack Keats – There is nothing more satisfying than reading this book on a very hot day.
NO DAVID! By David Shannon. No muddy footprints, no cookies, no, no, no. This was my son’s favorite book.
ALL WET! ALL WET! By James Skofield. Exploring the forest on a rainy summer day. Encourage your child to do the same with you on a rainy day.
LUCY THE DINOSAUR: SUMMER GAMES by Joey Ahlbum. My favorite illustrator and animator of all time – Joey Ahlbum. This summer read features the adorable pink helmeted Lucy the Dinosaur.
