When kids are toddlers they tend to like the same books read to them over and over and over again. But that's great for their brains. Nevertheless, we parents may not exactly enjoy reading them repeatedly. Now that my kids are past the toddler stage, I can look back on some of the best toddler books which I didn't mind reading again and again!
In fact, I'm going to miss reading these toddler board books and can recommend them heartily to any new parents who want to raise readers and are looking to stock their bookshelf with quality books for their kids. I loved reading these toddler books, and I know you will, too. (Note: I adore these books and have used affiliate links for book covers and titles.)
The danger of making a list of "best" toddler books is that inevitably some gems will be left off. But that's what the library is for! Be sure to keep your kids bookshelves stocked at their level so they have unfettered access to the books they love. Providing sturdy board books will keep you from stressing about all those ripped pages, and toddlers who love books grow up to be adults who love to read!
