Time for another month of, what my toddler insists on wanting to read. We’ve been trying to introduce some new and fun books each month. These are the ones she really took to in the month of April. Also, how is April already over? I guess with the whole Covid pandemic, months are flying by while at the same time feeling like they are taking a million years to finish.
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen– This book kept popping up on my searches for great books for toddlers, so I finally decided to purchase it. I’m so glad I did. Cameron really took to it, and she loves following along with Mr. Fish, as well as helping me read through parts of the book, and tracing words on the pages. It’s not a crazy long book, which is always a plus for us, since we know toddler attention spans are not crazy long. Especially at bed time. We loved this book so much, I’ve started looking into more from the series.
Moo, Baa, La La La by Sandra Boyton– This book makes it on our list this month because this is the first book that Cameron really can repeat because of how often we read it. I also love it because it’s helping her learn her animal noises, and say more words. Not to mention, Sandra Boyton books are great for this age, they are short, they rhyme, and have great themes that are easy to follow along with.
The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boyton– Another Sandra book makes our favorites list this month. I’m a big fan of this book because as you know, I really enjoy having a book that explains and talks about going to bed, so that we can get Cameron calmed and understanding that when we read stories in bed, that means it’s bedtime and we are getting ready for sleep. And as I stated above, Sandra Boyton books do a great job and catching toddler’s attention, and keeping them engaged. We love this book so much, we somehow have ended up with three copies of it.
I got all these books on Amazon, but I’m sure that places like Target and Walmart will have them as well. These are our top picks for April. We are already a few days in May and I can tell we are going to have some fun picks this month.
