What are your favorite toddler books?

Ryan has a handful of favorite books…. you know, the ones your kid brings you and makes you read over and over and over again. The ones where you get to the last page and they quickly grab it and return it to the first page. Again and again.

When Ryan first started doing this, I was excited… yayyyy he loves books!!! After awhile, I was like…. really? again? Don’t get me wrong, I still love that he loves books and I love reading to him, but… I can only quack like a duck so many times in a 15-minute time span.

So… I’ve been on the hunt for new books. I figure if we have a larger collection, we’ll have more variety to read. I’m probably wrong, eh? I’m sure he’ll still have his select favorites, but we’ll see. We keep all his books on the bottom 2 shelves of our bookshelf and after reading one, we tell him to go put it back and grab another one. He loves to help out, so he usually does!

When we flew to Colorado, I filled his little backpack with his favorite books and that was a huge help too. Right now he LOVES animals so he has two books… one is a “what do you say?” and each page is a different animal and what sound they make. The other one is very similar, but it’s farm animals and it’s also one of those “touch” books so the animals are furry or smooth or soft. And? Ryan is an absolute PRO at all animal sounds. Sure, he can’t really speak yet, but ask him what a snake or a donkey says. He’ll tell you.

His 2 other favorite books have moving parts. One has sliding doors and has lots of pictures of different things including cars (“CA!!”), which Ryan gets really excited about. The other one has a kitty cat chasing a mouse and he’s looking in the cupboards and under the couch and just can’t find that dang mouse! Ryan is surprised every.time. Haha, adorable.

Really, when Ryan isn’t outside chasing the cat (see below!), he loves to be inside reading a book on mama’s or dada’s lap 🙂

Soooo, our problem now is that a LOT of our books are for under age 1. We need some awesome new toddler story books. What are your kids reading? What are their favorites???I need some new titles!
