If I had to choose three they would be, in no particular order;
- Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, Illustrated by Clement Hurd
- I Am a Bunny by Ole Risom, Illustrated by Richard Scarry
- A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na
Each of these books has a gentle cadence, lovely illustrations and in board book format will withstand the coming toddler years!
Here are 10 books that I wouldn’t think of building a children’s library without.
- Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
- Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
- The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry
- Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
- Frances by Russell Hoban, Illustrated by Lillian Hoban
- The Frog and Toad Collection by Arnold Lobel
- Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
- The Story of Babar the Little Elephant by Jean De Brunhoff
- Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
- The Complete Adventures of Curious George by H.A. Rey and Margaret Rey
Roald Dahl is my favorite author to suggest for this age. His playful use of language paired with Quentin Blake’s expressive illustrations is sure to be a hit.
Looking for something more contemporary? You can’t go wrong with comics, kids love comics!
The Time Quintet by Madeline L’engle
The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins
- Gregor The Overlander
- Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane
- Gregor And The Curse Of The Warmbloods
- Gregor And The Marks Of Secret
- Gregor and the Code of Claw
Both series feature excellent storytelling, rich fantasy and relatable characters dealing frankly with issues faced by all children as they grow up.
