Best Toddler Books

JB
The list author says: "Our son (2 years old) loves books and so do we. Here are the best books that we have found thus far that we keep reading over and over again, and that both the toddler and the parents enjoy."
Bear Snores On
Bear Snores On
"What great sounds! Wonderful for reading out loud. Do not be scarred off by the amount of text per page, try reading it out loud to your baby and you may be surprised by the attention span you can get."
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
We're Going on a Bear Hunt
"A known camp song transformed into a wonderful book. Fun illustrations, great sound, and good tempo. "It's a bear!" was one of our son's first phrases."
Good Night, Gorilla
Good Night, Gorilla
"One of those books with almost no words, but illustrations that tell a great story. Gives us a chance to improvise while reading. This story of a gorilla who frees other animals and sneaks into the zoo keepers bed with them, makes me think of a child who brings stuffed animals and invades the parents' bed with them. :-)"
How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?
How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?
"In general the "How Do Dinosaurs ..." series by Jane Yolen is great. Great illustrations showing toddlers as dinosaurs and parents as human, together with great humorous text make this a winner."
Dinosaur Dinosaur
Dinosaur Dinosaur
"This book goes through a fairly typical toddler day (dinosaur as toddler) that our toddler can relate to. Great rhymes and rhythms as well as illustrations."
Chugga Chugga Choo Choo
Chugga Chugga Choo Choo
"In general, all Kevin Lewis books are just great! Wonderful rhymes, great themes, fun illustrations."
Tugga-Tugga Tugboat
Tugga-Tugga Tugboat
"So popular with our son that the cover got ripped off from enthusiastic frequent use, and had to be taped back on."
My Truck is Stuck!
My Truck is Stuck!
"One of the very best books ever -- one of the few we had to buy a second copy of because it was (ab)used too much. In Kevin Lewis' books the illustrations often tell additional aspects of the story not mentioned in the text, which is fun to explore as well."
One Duck Stuck: A Mucky Ducky Counting Book
One Duck Stuck: A Mucky Ducky Counting Book
"Animal sounds, counting, and helping are the themes of this book. It is a cross between "My Truck is Stuck" and "In the Small, Small Pond", so if your toddler enjoys those books, he or she will enjoy this one."
In the Small, Small Pond
In the Small, Small Pond
"This book is full of movement and sound and critters. A winning combination."
I Went Walking
I Went Walking
"Got this book around the time our son started walking, and he enjoyed it immensely."
Sheep in a Jeep

"Humorous romp."
Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale

The Wheels On The Race Car
The Wheels On The Race Car
"Wheels on the bus song, transformed into a race track setting, with animals as drivers. What a hoot!"
Two Little Trains
Two Little Trains
"A real train's journey compared to a toy train's progress. One of the best books ever, and it ends in a going to bed scene, so it makes a good nighttime story."
This Jazz Man
This Jazz Man
Not a Box
Not a Box
"Very simple line drawings and very simple words, but oh how imaginative and definitely a favorite! Consider using a card board box and a stuffed animal as a prop while reading this book, but adding gestures and sounds also works (I yoddle when we get to the box is a mountain page)."

Baby Dance (Harper Growing Tree)
