As promised the list of amazing board books continues this week. The board books in this post are very near and dear to my little Tuna’s heart. Whenever we sit down to read books either at bed time or anytime, these are the books she goes to first. If you missed last week’s post check it out here.
The twins will be two next month (March 2016), but Tuna has loved these since the beginning and we hope you will too.
Tuna’s Favorite Books
If you haven’t read a Llama Llama book yet, you need to drop what you are doing and find one IMMEDIATELY. We absolutely love all of the Llama Llama books but Tuna loves this one the most. Llama Llama Zippity-Zoom is a great book. It’s fun to read, super cute, and will have your kids laughing and reading along with you. We have read this so much that B can read it to her sisters and Tuna can even jump in on a few pages herself!
This book was given to us one Christmas and has been a favorite since (thank you Aunt Cathy). The girls love that it is a peep book and they love to read along with me. The line “Who’s in the Forest Dark and Deep,” repeats over and over and is easy for the kids to get into. You’ll love the illustrations, the repetition, and the animals that peep throughout the story. It’s also a great book to talk to use if you are talking about forests and the animals that live in them.
Another Sandra Boynton! I think this book would make top ten on all of our lists. Moo, Baa, Lalala is a fantastic book for little ones. Not only will your kiddos love to read it with you but it’s also great for introducing animal sounds. All of my girls have been able to read it (make the animal sounds) even before they could actually talk.
That’s not my dolly is new to us but we read it multiple times a day so I knew it had to make Tuna’s list. This is one of Usborne’s many touchy-feely books so if your kiddo’s aren’t in to dolls, trust me they have books for all interests. There are bumpy, shiny, soft, spotted, silky, and rough objects in this book that will have your kids experiencing the book as you read.
Tuna has loved this book since she was little itty bitty. She would try to pull it into her lap when she was barely able to sit herself and the book was heavier than she was. First 100 Words is just as the title says, a book full of pictures that are common objects in a baby’s life. This is a fantastic resource for introducing vocabulary to your little ones. As your kiddos grow this book can grow with them by asking things like, “Which is your favorite? Why do you like that one?”.
Well, there you have it, another list of board book favorites from a two year old. Although she can’t quite tell me why she loves each one, I know she would be pleased that these made her list.
What were hits for your one to two year old kiddos?
