Looking for ideas of books to read to your toddler? You can get ideas from award lists, like Caldecott Winners, from The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease, from your librarian, from other families (like my list below — a work in progress), or from just stumbling upon them. Make library visits part of your routine and check out a few books each week. I always have my list of to-reads in mind, but I like to get a book or two not on my list — books that catch my eye or that Caroline pulls of the shelf and hands to me. I’ve stumbled upon some great ones this way. I’ve created an amazon list of our favorites.
