Daily Activity for Kids – Top 5 Books for Toddlers and Preschool

Reading books can take us to a world that our imagination can run free in. It allows us to explore the world, to see things different, to feel how someone else might feel. Reading is a time to unplug and spend time together with your young child. Books provide a great teaching opportunity to help children explore the world around them and themselves.

Today we are sharing our list of the top 5 books for young children (both toddlers and preschoolers):


  1. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? By Bill Martin Jr.
  2. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
  3. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
  4. I Love you Forever by Robert Munsch
  5. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.



  1. The Paperbag Princess by Robert Munsch
  2. The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
  3. If you Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff
  4. Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney
  5. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen


For infants and toddlers, it’s best to get board books which are durable and won’t tear when they handle it. For preschoolers, paperback books are best. Your children will surely love our book recommendations. Enjoy!
