Five Book Lists for Children

Five great book lists for kids
In the past few months I’ve been creating book lists for children for my fellow bloggers. (See the index of all my book lists.) In lieu of my usual weekly kids’ book list, today I’m giving you five book lists for children! The selections cover a variety of topics, genres and age ranges, such as board books, poetry, history and even interactive books. If this isn’t enough for you, I’ve got a few more guest posts coming up in the next few months and I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

After you’ve checked out the posts, I hope you’ll spend a bit of time on each blog. You’ll find loads of fun parenting and kid activity ideas to help keep your little ones entertained.

board books for toddlers


My kids are growing up so fast! I’m starting to miss all those lovely toddler board books. For Connecting Family & Seoul I curated a list of 8 toddler board books I consider essential picks for every home library. If you have kids under the age of 4, you will love reading these books to them. Honestly, my kids still enjoy many of these choices.


interactive picture books


Books that invite kids to pull tabs, push buttons and unfold flaps are a great way to demonstrate to your kids how reading can be a creative activity. Teach kids that books are not fragile, precious objects! Over at hands on : as we grow you can check out my list of interactive books for kids.


black history month books for kids


During Black History Month I put together this list of 10 picture books which celebrate the contributions of African-Americans for No Twiddle Twaddle. I indicated the ages for which I felt each book was appropriate and I hope parents won’t limit their reading of these books to the month of February! Any time is a good time to learn about the history of our country.


poetry books for kids


April is National Poetry Month and I have been making a concerted effort to share more poetry with my kids, something I have been remiss with in the past. The Pleasantest Thing published my suggestions for 9 poetry books to read with your kids. I included both classic and contemporary poetry collections.



picture books for boys


The mom blogger behind Go Kid Yourself asked for some books that her rambunctious, superhero-loving boy could enjoy in between his daredevil stunts. I came up with 8 books for rowdy boys. The picture books on this list made me giggle and I think they’ll make your kids laugh, too. {Oh, and they are for girls, too!}

    You are the kids lit list queen! Thanks for some more great ideas, BTW we are really enjoying ‘The Pain and the Great One’ by Judy Blume at the moment (from another one of your lists!).

    I really love your lists. You will always find so many people that will find at least one (and likely many more) completely relevant to them. If you are looking for a place to do a guest post, we would love to have you! :-)

      Thanks, Renee! Right now I am behind on the guest lists I agreed to do, but I’ll keep it in mind!
