Our Favorite Toddler Books: 2-3 year olds

Anni Hanna
The list author says: "My 2 and a half year old twin boys and I love going to the library every week and lugging home a big bag of books. We've found it helpful to have recommendations from Listmania and library websites on books we shouldn't miss. I've found these to be all at a 2-3 year level, not too long, yet not overly simplistic. Here are some of our favorites."
