24 Must Read Toddler Books

These toddler books are sure to become favorites in your home, too!

Toddler Books Enjoyed by Eli

The toddler years go by so quickly!  I love toddlers with their inquisitive minds that soak up information like sponges.  My biggest piece of advice for taking advantage of all that learning energy – read, read, read!  Living literature, of course – yes, it even matters in the earliest of ages.

Below are some of Eli’s most favorite books of all time in his toddler years.  How do I know?  I read them each at least 100 times.  You tend to get the feeling that a book is enjoyed when your little one brings it to you over and over again…day after day…month after month.  I hope your toddler enjoys these books as much as my Eli did.

  1. We have most of these books. I think my favorite of the Llama one… I think it just brings back memories of when my oldest was still about two.

  2. Many of these are favorites, but we also went through a Big Red Barn phase for several months!
