Reading books with your little one is not only a great bonding experience, but a poignant teaching opportunity as well. Children have an amazing capacity to remember their favorite stories — often verbatim — and really look forward to hearing their favorite stories… even if they’ve already heard them dozens of times before. Here are a few ideal toddler books that will help you, as a parent, make an impression on your youngster.
Kids’ Book For Bedtime:
By Jane Tolen & Mark Teague
Does your child tend to throw tantrums at bed time? This adorable children’s book features dinosaurs who are dishing up kisses at bedtime to show a good example of what parents expect from them at night.
Toddler Potty Training Book:
By Dawn Bentley & Krisztina Nagy
Teach your child how to use the toilet using this rhyming book. It’s easy to understand, but not so simplistic your eyes will hurt (from rolling around your head) while reading. It’s not overly graphic or full of the word “poo” on every page.
A Book That Teaches Manners:
By Stan & Jan Berenstein.
Does your child need to learn how to say “please,” “thank-you” and be considerate to others? The Berenstein Bears books are the sort you can read again and again, and never get sick of them. The illustrations are bound to have your child giggling, but the overall message is memorable too.
