Our Family's Favorite Toddler Books

Today I wanted to share with you our family's favorite toddler books. We love to read in our home; the boys get stories before bed every night, and any time they bring a book to us during the day, Matt and I are happy to read to them! We want to instill good reading habits in them and encourage their imaginations through reading!

Here's a list of some of our favorites! 

Anything by Sandra Boynton - her books are funny and have a super fun cadence to them. Our favorites are Hippos Go Berserk, Hey! Wake Up, and The Going to Bed Book.

Goodnight Gorilla - this one really lets us and the boys use their imaginations to tell the story because it's just a picture book. 

Where's Spot? - this one is perfect for young toddlers, because they love to open the flaps.

Little Blue Truck - a fun, rhyming book that also teaches a lesson about helping others, even when they're being stinkers.

Home for a Bunny - a classic. In fact, the copy that we have is the one I had growing up...so it's OLD! I don't know what I like best about it- the gorgeous illustrations or the story line!

The Goodnight Train - it's so soothing for bedtime; it makes me sleep just reading it!

Anything by Mercer Mayer - we love the Little Critter books! They're sweet and funny, but always have a great moral to the story such as sharing 

What are your favorite books to read to your kids?
