A List of Stories for Young Children

I'm collecting a list of stories to read to young children. Most of these books have repeated language and usually some rhyming words.

Please add a comment and include some of your favorites. I can edit this blog and add your favorites.

I've linked each book to Amazon where you can find reviews and information about each book.

Those are great, but I tend to prefer things that are unique and unusual that appeal to their visual, tactile, develop hand and eye co-ordination and creativity. Have you seen "A Squirrel's Tale" or "There's a Mouse in the House", to name a few.

Yes. I used to own a copy of A Squirel's Tale. We lost the squirrel, so I got rid of the book. Some of the reviewers at Amazon traced the squirrel on the back of the book and made a new one. I can't remember if A squirrel's Tale has rhyming or repeated language. Books with interactive options are great. I added the ones you suggested. These type of books increase child interest in books through play. Three books from the list are interactive and have lift flaps: Dear Zoo, Who's Making That Mess, and Where's Spot. Thanks for sharing!
