We are book obsessed over here. Okay, I must admit, that it all stems from me and my desire to own every children's book ever made. Yup, I have a problem folks. BUT Kingston is certainly following in my footsteps and it is thrilling me to no end that he is now getting into longer books with plots that are fun to read. Of course, books for babies are great, but my heart truly lies with books that have a little more depth.
Listed below are the books that Kingston currently can't put down. He is 22 months! I don't necessarily think all toddlers his age will be interested in these books, however, they are definitely worth checking out.
Little Blue Truck - This is another one that has been a long time favorite of K's. If you haven't read this book, or it's sequel Little Blue Truck Leads the Way to your toddler, you are really missing out. They teach such amazing lessons of lending a hand, perseverance, patience, and more. We also read these books in Baby Book Club! You can read more about our meeting in that post.
My Monster Mama Loves Me So - This book is new to us, and we are both loving it! It is an adorable book narrated by a little monster who's Mama loves him. He talks about all of the nice things she does for him which are silly and monster themed (like taking him to swim in the swamp and feeding him food only a monster would love). It is beyond cute, and the amount of text is perfect for keeping a toddlers attention.
Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! - Kingston really loves the Pigeon character. These books by Mo Willems are adorable, and are really fun for adults to read aloud to little ones. We mostly read Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!, but I'm looking forward to getting more titles featuring the fun-loving pigeon. There is just enough comedy in it that toddlers can laugh and understand while it entertains older children. These are great books to read if you are reading to multiple age groups!
The Rabbits' Carnival - This is another book from my childhood that K is in love with. I am still in love with it too! It is a story about a carnival that becomes abandoned except for once a year when the rabbits bring the carnival back to life. The text is beautiful and rolls off the tongue. The description is gorgeous, and so are the pictures! It is definitely not for a short attention span though. If your little one loves enchanting text and pictures, this is a great choice!
Sheep in a Jeep - This simple rhyming book is one K gravitates to often. It is about 5 sheep on a road trip and the shenanigans they get into. There are many other books based off of these sheep if you like this one!
What are your toddlers current favorite books? We'd love to hear about them in the comments!
