BOOKS FOR KIDS
The number one way to improve your child’s educational level is to read to them. Don’t over complicate it, just make time to read with your kids! Discover topics or characters your child enjoys and read them with enthusiasm. Here are a few of my personal recommendations:
Most preschoolers enjoy a good read aloud, especially if you add a few cuddles and silly voices to go along. These are our favorites:
- Berenstain Bears: life lessons
- Biscuit: beginning readers
- Clifford: friendship
- Eric Carle: science and art stories
- Curious George: math and playfulness
Each child will feel differently about reading. Find your child’s motivation to read, whether it’s stories about kids their age, silly books or graphic novels.
- Ramona, Pinkalicious: girl series
- Flat Stanley, Horrible Harry: beginner chapter books
- Sandra Boynton: beginner rhymes
- Elephant and Piggie: beginning readers
- Dogman: graphic novels
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid: great for reluctant readers
- Magic Treehouse: science lesson adventures
Some kids may be more engaged when you make books interactive, such as these fun singalongs where you can count, act out or play along. Young children especially love when stories can be told in song.
- Raffi collections: Down by the Bay, Baby Beluga, 5 Little Ducks
- Classic songs: The Ants Go Marching, Wheels on the Bus, Old MacDonald
- There Was an Old Lady series
Reading a story before bed can be the easiest way to calm a busy child down before lights out. Repetitive reading is especially fun when your child can join in on the fun.
- Night Night Little Pookie
- Ten in the Bed
- Good Morning, Good Night
- The Going to Bed Book
- Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Want a book that gives your child tools to understand the Bible? Here are a few of our family favorites:
- Book of Prayers: great for preschool
- Jesus Calling for Kids: independent readers
- The Beginner’s Bible: my favorite for teaching Bible stories
- The Storybook Bible: a creative way to read the Bible
- 9 Fruits Alive: Holy Spirit Board Book
