Our Favorite Preschool Books
There are so many great books for preschoolers that it's hard for us to pick our favorites. Here are just a few of them:
Olivia by Ian Falconer
Olivia is a bright young pig with high hopes and dreams. "This is Olivia. She is good at lots of things. She is very good at wearing people out. She even wears herself out." I love how the author incorporates famous paintings by Degas and Pollock into the story.
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
Madeline is a young girl who lives in a boarding school in Paris. "In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines-the smallest one was Madeline." The rhyming can be a little awkward at times, but the story and illustrations are so charming. I love how you can find famous landmarks of Paris in the scenes: the Eiffel Tower, the Opera, Notre Dame, the Church of Sacre Coeur, and more.
Curious George by Margret & H.A. Rey
"This is George. George was a good little monkey and always very curious." George lives with his friend, the man with the yellow hat. This man always seems to leave George unsupervised and allows him to get into trouble. Somehow, George always manages to fix the problem and save the day in the end. Then, the man shows up again to take him home. The stories are engaging & funny.
Richard Scarry's Best Storybook Ever by Richard Scarry
This is a very classic children's book filled with nursery rhymes and stories. The illustrations are sweet and traditional. The book covers the alphabet, numbers, toys, animals, shapes, buildings, cars & trucks, flowers, colors, clothes, planes, trains, boats, musical instruments, tools, the seasons, the months of the year, and more.
Because A Little Bug Went Ka-choo! By Rosetta Stone (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss)
"You may not believe it, but here's how it happened. One fine summer morning...a little bug sneezed." Because of that sneeze, a series of hilarious events occur. The funny story and pictures are captivating! This is Dr. Seuss's best work.
