The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends through policy that pediatricians consult parents on the importance of reading aloud to children during the early years.
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.
