Three Books to Catch Toddlers' Eyes


I recommend these exciting books to read to toddlers, they can sing at the top of their lungs, dancing around the room, laugh at the silly words, clap hands or just enjoy the bright colorful illustrations. The goal is to be active and have a good time.

Bedtime for Chickies by Janee Trasler

This book is good when you want to read your child a bedtime story with a sense a humor. Wonder when the three little chickies will go to sleep. Mother tries everything for the baby chickies to fall asleep, but something always came up. "Momma I’m thirsty, I’m hungry." I know any parent could relate to this book.

Colors Pop-up Peekaboo! By Dawn Sirett

Pop up books are good books to start off with toddlers; there is a surprise in every page. It is exciting for toddlers to find out what could be behind the open flaps. It helps them interact with you and introduce them to yellow ducky, red bird, blue fish hiding in the rainbow flap.

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow

If you want a book that you can sing, dance, laugh, and learn numbers all at the same time, this book would be perfect to read. This nursery rhyme book could be acted out by puppets and five fingers. When momma says good night to her five little monkeys they all start jumping on the bed and one by one fall off the bed.
