Good kid books..

Darci - posted on 03/20/2011 ( 5 moms have responded )




My son just turned 2 and has well over 150 books, but it just doesn't seem like enough I guess because I feel like I have every single one of them memorized. He needs some new books. I'm sick of reading the same ones over and over. He loves to be read to and we probably read about 20-30 books a day. Any one have any good suggestions on some good books for a 2 year old? I need some ideas on some fun good books. Thanks!

Your son and mine should get together... more of our shelves are full of kid books that it has pushed my husbands and my books into crates.

My 2.5 year old LOVES Llama Llama books (llama llama red pajama, llama llama mad at momma, etc) and I enjoy those too... we read books I grew up with like Chika-chicka-boom-boom and PJ Funnbunny, but my husband and I also make up our own stories.

We go to the library's storytime once a week and rent new books about every two weeks.

We love some of the lesser-known dr. seuss books like "When a Little Bug Sneezed".

Anything with dinosaurs is a winner in this house!

I don't know where you live, but I'm pretty sure the Dolly Parton's Books from birth is nation wide and we do that, so we get a new book in the mail each month....

I read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You see? to my 9 month old all the time. She seems to love it. It was my favorite when I was school-age.
