10 Books My Toddler Loves #FridayFrivolity

In honor of World Book Day and Dr. Seuss, this Friday Frivolity we’re talking books, books and more books. I love to read. At 25 I still own every book that’s ever been given to me. I’m talking hand me down baby books from when my mom was a kid that I can now share with my daughter. We have a lot of books at our house. You could understand my overwhelming pride and happiness when my little one started to love books. We’re now at the point that reaching “the end” causes actual tears in my 15 month old. She hates when the books are over.

Today I’ll be sharing with you ten books my toddler loves.

1. Dear Zoo: A Lift-the-Flap Book
By: Rod Campbell

This book is awesome because it makes reason interactive. The flaps reveal different kinds of animals and are easy for little fingers to manipulate. Dear Zoo has been a staple for us for months.

Find it on Amazon.


2. First 100 Words
By: Roger Priddy

My daughter goes nuts for this book. It entertains for so long because there’s so much to look at. Each page has a focus like “Colors” or “Outside” and shows kids words associated with the theme. There is an app that goes along with it that my daughter loves as well. Every day she brings me this book and points to the pictures waiting for me to tell her the word.

3. The Going to Bed Book
By: Sandra Boynton

This book is super cute. The illustrations are vibrant and it makes a great bedtime story. The story takes to through the bedtime routine of the animals aboard a ship. It’s critically acclaimed and I highly recommend it.

Find it on Amazon.


4. Dr. Suess’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book
By: Dr. Suess

Here is my favorite Dr. Suess book. Dr. Suess’s ABC takes you through the entire alphabet and shows little ones uppercase, lowercase and words that begin with the letter. It’s a great way to introduce your littles to the alphabet.

Find it on Amazon.


5. On The Night You Were Born
By: Nancy Tillman

This book is perfect! I seriously cried the first time we read it. The poetry is beautiful. It is a heartfelt reminder to children how special they are to us. My daughter loves the illustrations of the animals. This makes a wonderful bedtime story and would make an absolutely perfect baby shower gift.

Find it on Amazon.


6. Potty
By: Leslie Patricelli

This is hands down my daughter’s favorite book. The illustrations are simple. The narrative is straightforward. The story is about a baby who decides to use the potty instead of their diaper. My daughter is so obsessed with Potty that I can recite the story from memory, I bought her a doll of the baby from the story and we now have over 10 other books in the collection.

Find it on Amazon.


7. Giraffes Can’t Dance
By: Giles Andreae

I love this adorable story. Gerald is a giraffe who doesn’t have the confidence to dance because the other animals make fun of him. When he stops worrying and just goes with it he becomes an awesome dancer and all the other animals gather around to watch him. It’s a great book about self esteem.

Find it on Amazon.


8. Fruit Salad Day
By: Sesame Street

My daughter loves this book because it’s scratch and sniff. Elmo goes on a trip to the grocery store and tries to figure out a way to have all the fruits he wants at the same time. He meets his friends who share their favorite fruits and you can smell the fruits for yourself. This is an adorable book that promote healthy eating.

Find it on Amazon.


9. May I Please Have A Cookie?
By: Jennifer E. Morris

In this story Alfie is in desperate want for one of his mother’s cookies. He tries many different ways to get one before his mother gives him the idea to politely ask for one. This book is a lovely reminder for children about the importance of manners and how politeness can help you in life.

Find it on Amazon.


10. Hop on Pop
By: Dr. Suess

Here’s another great pick from the man himself. Hop on Pop has simple rhymes that are easy for children to pick up and is a great starter book for children to read on their own.

Find it on Amazon.

    Great selection! My twin boys are on the brink of speech therapy so I’m trying to get them into books more. These look perfect 🙂 #productivemomslinkup

    We love both of those Dr Seuss books. Can’t go wrong with Seuss. I believe we have that 100 first words book too. We read every day and are always looking for new books to read. I’ll keep an eye out for these and pick them up if I see them. Thanks for linking with #APeachyParty
