The list author says: "I beleive well before a child can read, working on their vocabulary is very important in their future ability to read, after all, what good does it do to sound out the word if you have never heard of it and you don't understand what it means. Here are some books that use bigger vocabulary in them to help you preschooler.Some of these books have a lot of reading, but others only have a couple sentences per page. All of them will give you something to talk about with your youngster to help them expand their knowledge of the world."
"You can't go wrong with Bill Peet books, they are all great, with great illustrations and a paragragh or two on each page with great vocabuolary. great imagination in his books. a paragraph to a page."
"baby animal names to talk about with nice illustrations. Also, try "A pinky is a Baby Mouse" by Pam Munoz Ryan. Lots of vocabulary. And a great book to keep reading over and over until your little one can remember the babies names."
"the months of the year are covered in this book as santa keeps changing his clothes to find that special look. Very nice fun christmas story. covers a variety of different kind of outfits giving you a chance to open up a discussion on clothes."
"A nice story about a confused moose with way too big of a mustache and his crazy attemps at solving his problem. There is also a christmas version of moostache. This book can be a little odd to read, but the kids seem to get it and ask to read it again. Be prepared to explain some of the vocabulary and to read it a few times for you all to really get into it. It is worth the extra work."
"fantastic imagination, plenty to talk about, outerspace, aliens, sharing, moon pies and milk. This is one of my favorite. And my son sat with his eyes wide open as we read this book for the first time."
"Book about measurment. instead of using inches to feet, beaver needs to measure a peice of wood and uses the creatures around him to help out. Great to read this book and then work on comparing objects you have around the house. couple sentences a page of reading."
