10 Great Books for Little Kids
Show only see all. More refinements More refinements Suess, but you have to admit they get a bit annoying sometimes: Thanks so much for all the suggestions! My son is 20 months old. He still likes a few board books here and there, but much prefers picture books. I cannot say enough good things about these books. We have read them both about a million times. They are definately twaddle-free. Beautiful illustrations and lovely stories.
We also love my childhood favorite, The Winter Bear by Ruth Craft, illustrated by Erik Blegvad and The Three Pigs by David Weisner quite different and much happier than the original — also with beautiful illustrations. He is quite choosy. No is his favorite word at the moment. He loves, loves, loves to read! Thanks again for the list!
Sam and the Firefly…They are absolutely fablous and are favourites of my 4-year olds nursery class. They are so fun to read…just like Dr. The vocabulary is a little advanced, but even my 2-year old likes the stories. I also love all of the Bernstein Bears books and the books by Richard Scarry.
These are some of my favorites: Shoemaker 8 — Vincent Van Gogh: Suess Green Eggs and Ham-Dr. Thank you for this post. We love Beatrix Potter at our house. Also, Sing a Song of Popcorn is a wonderful book of rhymes and poetry, and The Big Book of Little has lots of excerpts from classics and fabulous illustrations. Cleaning out the twaddle and finding GOOD books was my first step toward homeschooling. It makes a huge difference.
So many wonderful selections!! A few Canadian suggestions: Many situations my little ones identify with. She is blind herself. Her illustrations are done in clay, with amazing texture. I really love this topic! I love your list, too. I have to agree with one of the commenters who mentioned a few negatives about the Mercer Mayer books—I have noticed a few myself, although I still enjoy them.
As a teacher I enjoyed reading anything by Kevin Henkes. He has serious talent. I guarentee that you will love them! I grew up reading them and they have a great storyline and work in a moral for each story. These books are not just for 3 year olds. I remember enjoying them for many years!

I think I might write another post like this for 10 more twaddle-free books. Hi, What a wonderful thread. Im the mother of a four and a half month old son. I was overwhelmed with gifts of many books when he was born, most of which could not be returned…. And Im pretty particular about the type of illustrations I like. Perhaps someone could post a top 10 twaddle list…. This is a great post and a really nice layout.
My youngest of six! Scattered on our floor right now? My oldest is going on 5, and still wants to read it almost daily Chicka Chicka Boom Boom even my 2 year old can recite this now! Mi Primer Libro de las Ciencias by Larousse do they make these in english? Sadly, as I have all boys, we will probably never share my favorites as a child: Little Women, Ramona and Paddington — from first grade on, I read and re-read these books.
I love the classic Winnie the Pooh. My granddaughter has loved this book since day one. Mix in a little Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and we can read for hours. The repetition and rhyming is great. We borrowed it from the library and ended up ordering it for a birthday it was so well loved. Great post and comments. And we love, love, love Maurice Sendak. I just wanted to say that I love your top ten list! I have almost four year old twins and a son who is nearing three and every single one of your choices is on our list of favourites as well!
What a great list and conversation-starter!

Steig Owl Babies — M. Are We There Yet? And hats off to all you homeschoolers. Soooo many good books here. While I like the Frances books they can give a kid ideas… like making demands at bedtime. It made me tear up with joy in the middle of the public library. My husband likes them, but they come across as heavily moralizing and poorly written to me. Hi…thanks for this terrific list. I am completing an online course, needing to write a unit plan that involves high school kids reading to pre-schoolers and so was looking for a good list of read alouds for my unit plan.
My own children in typical boy fashion only ever wanted Thomas the Tank Engine stories so, I was lost as to where to begin. The originals are such fun, and my boys still play, a year later, that the Littles are living in our walls. The also loved the Ralph Mouse books by Beverly Cleary. Even though we have forayed into chapter books, picture books are still their favorite part of bedtime! They are so rich and so fun all at the same time! Island Counting is the best! The Birthday Box and Yummy Yucky are so easy to read times. These are so much fun! I think they have various authors.
I think what is important is simplicity in word form and ideas, and repetition. Kids love to read the same book. It helps them gain self-confidence when they recognize something, they are more likely to begin to hear rhythm and understand new words by using the same books for a time. My younger kids as a teacher of years and as a mom like: What a great list of classics! We still quote Frances and Frog and Toad around here, and my boys are now 10 and It can be hard to know where to look for information, too.
Other places parents might find new titles of note are through School Library Journal and Horn Book, which are print review journals with on-line counterparts. We also love Blueberries for Sal which my granddaughter has to have read to her over and over especially since blueberries are ripe! Eve Rice books are favorites, too. Thanks for sharing your list. I see a couple I need to purchase for my granddaughters that I had forgotten about. Some family favorites here: Informative yet hilariously creative.
I get misty every. I know most see them as adorable and creative, but they just bug me. I have convinced my husband that I am Toad Type A, but well-meaning and he is Frog full of energy and loves me anyway. Here are a few of my favorites. I am new to the concept of twaddle…but am highly suspicious that I am guilty of such this faux pas. And so, we read a lot of Barbara Boynton. Pretty sure her stuff would be considered twaddle. Favourites in our house… Stanley and Rhoda by Rosemary Wells — great brother sister relationship.
Winnie the Witch stories — I think the illustrations are above and beyond the stories. Meg and Mog books — bold, simple, fun. Great picture books by Philippe Dupasquier, include Dear Daddy, a great story about children waiting for their father to return from overseas. Ferdinand was always one of my favorites. Seuss has no equal! But they also teach really cute little lessons, because no matter what happens to him in one story he steps in several things and ruins his white shoes, and in another he loses all the buttons on his shirt , Pete keeps on singing! This is a great list, and important.
A former student gave to me as a baby gift when I had my first child and I have treasured it since for all the above reason. This was likely already mentioned in the plethora of comments, but I had to give a shout out to Mo Willems on this post. As a parent, I literally enjoy reading the Elephant and Piggie books and often find myself laughing out loud.
They are a true story about a girl growing up during the Depression in Canada. It is hard to narrow down, but the current favourites around our house with the parents too! My girl is now a teenager but her favourite book is The Nickle Nackle Tree. When we gave it away, she insisted we get her another one even though she was 16 at the time. A good story has stickabilty.

I have written a couple of android app books I thought you may be interested in. You can view the youtube videos here: The set included a facsimile of the original cloth-bound edition of the book, and I learned to read by following along with the records. I highly recommend this, and Through the Looking-Glass, as read-together books for families, especially with the original Tenniel illustrations.
I love your list! Blueberries for Sal would definitely be in my own Top 10! I love the list you provided…but, I would add one. It is the oldest, most adored book at my house. The front cover is taped and some of the pages have been ripped and patched up more than once, but it has survived for 20 years! My 21 year old daughter still reads it when she comes home.
My book club children and preschoolers loved it and asked for it over and over. I appreciate your insight and sharing. Thanks for reposting this, always looking for good books for my three year old! But, he also has most of the books on this list!

He loves nonfiction, too, so the National Geographic Kods books are good friends of his right now…the same books some of my fifth graders read at school! We also had an audio version and my kids now 25 and 29! Any books on the Five in a Row curriculum list are twaddle free — several are on this list and all are great quality. Thank you so much for this list! I have been going through reading lists because we are in need of getting more books for my almost 3 year old who is totally bored with his books and was looking for a twaddle-free list without knowing it, lol!
I was so excited to find this list…my boy loves Katy and the Big Snow more than Mike Mulligan but he loves them both and so glad to find all of these other books!! I wish I had books to add to the list but a lot of folks have mentioned them already so no sense in repeating. These books are very specific but my child likes them and I think they are worth buying.
He likes Winnie the Pooh but will appreciate the humor more as he gets older like you said. What a fantastic selection of books! Many of these are all-time favorites of mine.
