Infant and Toddler Age Children, Ages 0-3

 

Reading to our kids has never been more important than now.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends through policy that pediatricians consult parents on the importance of reading aloud to children during the early years.  A jump-start on reading is a jump-start on language comprehension.

 

Children's Book Reviews for ages 0 to 3

Here at The Children’s Book Review we receive hundreds of books each month to review, and these are a few that have remained our absolute favorite infant and toddler books of all time.  Who could not forget Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown; and the little old lady, or the sneaky crew at the zoo in Good Night, Gorilla, by Peggy Rathman; and a fun story that teaches us there’s no point in trying to hide a red ripe strawberry, The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear, by Audrey and Don Wood.  Children love these tales, and probably quite a few adults too.

In this section of our online reading oasis, our infant and toddler book reviews  are appropriate and fun for any child age 0-3.  Books with good amounts of color and simple illustration are perfect for fine tuning our newest readers.  We have alphabet books, animal books, bedtime books, and beyond. Take a look at some of our current articles:

Schulze and Hardy make a dynamic duo, pairing the best of charming prose and illustrations to excellent effect. Full of laughs, singing, and a few wiggles, DON’T WAKE THE DRAGON is a fantastic addition to a child’s library.

Designed to be read aloud and interacted with, parents will take pleasure in the playful text as much as children will enjoy gently rocking the book from side to side as they sing the dragon a lullaby.
