20 Great Books for Toddlers

20 of our favorite books for toddlersI have always been a reader and am trying to instill the love of reading in my children. I am proud to say that I have been successful with my older son who is a voracious reader. So much so that I have compiled a list of books for teens and pre-teens as well.

My toddler who just turned three also loves books. He is at the point where he looks at books for a good part of the day and wants us to read to him often. Because of this I have decided to compile a list of books for toddlers based on what both of my kids have enjoyed and recommendations from friends.

I have intentionally left out some of the perennial favorites since I think most of us know and love Good Night Moon, Where the Wild Things Are, etc.
