What are good books to read to children? What books do children like the most? When a child asks for a story to be read many times, you know you've found a good book.
Watch this video from a librarian to give you some help finding good books to read to your child.
Here's a previous post with books I think young children like. A List of Stories for Young Children
I recently went through my family's books and pulled out my children's favorite books. I read these stories soooo many times.
I separated these books to make sure I don't lose or give any of them away. It was easy to find my kids' favorites. Most were torn and taped. My kids found the boxes and were thrilled to read these books themselves. Some were read more than 100 times when they were little. Someday I plan to read these same books to my future grandchildren. It will be nice to say, "This is the same book I read to your (mom / dad)".
Here are links to a few of my family's favorites. You'll find reviews and descriptions of the books if you click on a title of interest. Maybe your family will find a few new favorites.
