Books for Preschoolers

For children in the 3-5 year range, incorporate more complex stories to help develop narrative skills. Books that focus on behavioral issues or concepts important to children at this stage are helpful (potty-training, new brothers and sisters, etc.). Continue to use books with a lot of rhyme and repetition; it keeps the story engaging and helps children to remember what they’re hearing (Ghoting and Martin-Díaz 2006, 197-198). Talking about numbers and letters becomes important during this time, so it’s helpful to introduce books that reinforce these concepts.

The following books are great examples to start with. Click on the titles to see user reviews, links to libraries and booksellers, and more from Goodreads.com:
