Well, if you’ve read along for a few weeks now, congrats you made it! This is the last post of the four-part series on our favorite amazing, wonderful, fabulous, and incredible board books! Inspired and partly written by my adorable three-year old daughter, B. We hope you enjoy!
B loves to watch me write, so when I told her that she could help me with this post she was beyond ecstatic. We have gone through our books lately in attempts to put away any that they have outgrown or to give away. In the process, we came across a few that had gotten pushed to the back of the shelf/bin that had been long time favorites.
B was more than happy to pull out her all-time favorites from when she was a baby (because she’s all grown up now and three) and explain why she loved them so much. So without further ado…
Amazing Books as told by B:
“I love this book because the Jack part is really cool. I also love the “Dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum” part in the book.”
We have this book as a hardcover and board book, little did we know that there are some really awesome pages in the hardcover that didn’t make the board book. That’s the Jack part that she is referring too. Hand, Hand, Fingers Thumb is a silly but extremely catchy book everyone in the family will love.
“I love this book because I like the ABC’s and I love dogs.”
Biscuits ABC’s is a super cute flap book that exposes kids to the ABC’s but also to the friends, love, and adventures of Biscuit the Dog, and who doesn’t love Biscuit!
“I love this book because I love it.”
Tails was honestly her first book love. I’m not sure if I’ve read any other book as much as I’ve read Tails. The animals are great, the textures are especially fun for little ones, and it’s just an all around great book.
“Snuggle Puppy is funny and I like counting the candy.” The candy being the O’s in the story!
Snuggle Puppy would have made the Mom’s List of Amazing Board books but I knew that it would be on B’s list. Sandra Boynton did it again with this adorable love song. It’s catchy and cute and a perfect way to help express how much you love your little ones.
“I just like it and I like the numbers.”
Hippos Go Berserk was another of B’s first book loves, but I think that’s mainly because Mama liked it a lot as well. This is a great book to introduce your little ones to counting and numbers. The hippos are adorable and we have a blast going “berserk.” You can also address feelings like what it means to be alone or why the hippo is sad at the end.
Although a three year old may not have a lot to say on the subject, I can guarantee that these books are fabulous. If you missed any of the posts in this series feel free to check them out: A Mom’s List, Tuna’s List of Childhood Favorites, and A Wee Ones’ List (Shrimps’ favorites).
What do your kids/grandkids enjoy reading? What are some of the favorites in your house? We love hearing about new books and look forward to hearing from you!
Warmest Wishes and Happy Reading,
