It is a very exciting time in time in our house because Sweet Pea is really starting to recognize letters. Her interest in reading has sky-rocketed and we typically spend about 30 to 45 minutes a day (not counting school) reading with her or doing other literacy activities for toddlers. Check out some of our favorite books to read in March!
Great Books for Toddlers: March
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss- Dr. Seuss’s birthday is in March, so what a great time to introduce Sweet Pea to some of his longer classics. Her attention span was just long enough to not only be delighted by this silly book, but ask for it to be read again and again.
Angelina Ballerina by Katharine Holabird- I am not sure, but I think every little girl goes through a ballerina phase. We aren’t there yet, but this book series is awfully cute. Check it out and you will be delighted!
Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann- Sweet Pea is over the moon crazy about Pinkalicious. I think she can relate to the spunky nature of this little girl and we both love entering her world of creativity and super active imagination.
Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever by Richard Scarry- Now that Sweet Pea is learning so many new words a day, it is impossible to keep up, we decided it would be fun to fan that literacy flame with this oldie but goodie.
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn and Ruth E. Harper- This is such a sweet book. Typically it is read to kids who are starting a new school. Well, Sweet Pea certainly encounters plenty of new situations, even as a 2-year old. I know we will be reading this for year to come.
It’s Mine! by Leo Lionni- Ha! It’s Mine! Have you heard your toddler utter that phrase yet? This cute little book talks about sharing and the illustrations are funny too!
Away in My Airplane by Margaret Wise Brown- Sweet Pea’s Daddy is an aerospace engineer, so we grab any chance we get to expose her to airplanes. This book, by the same author who wrote Goodnight, Moon, would make anyone want to fly an airplane!
The Bunny Rabbit Show by Sandra Boynton- I believe this is Sandra Boynton’s newest book… and just in time for Easter!
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney- As we transition from the crib to the ‘big-girl’ bed, this book is sure to get a lot of play. Such a cute story of a little llama who really just needs to go to sleep.
I Love You, Sleepyhead by Claire Freedman and Simon Mendez- The illustrations for this book are amazing and of course, the reassurance that Mommy and Daddy love them will be sure to enable peaceful sleeping for your toddler.
Thanks for reading!
