What to read to a three-year-old
 
My parents never read children's books to me. Amazing that I ended up as an English major.


What books are appropriate to read at bedtime to a three-year-old? I'd like something a little longer than, like, Goodnight Moon, that maybe we could start one night and finish the next or the next.


I read one of her "longer" books to her last month at her home, and she was very interested. It made me think she could handle something longer that might take more than one reading to complete.


Any help appreciated.

My granddaughter loved the Fancy Nancy books. Also Shel Silverstein. I forget the appropriate age for these. It’s been a while.

After I posted, just for kicks, I googled “books for a 3 year old.”

Wow. I couldn’t believe all the great suggestions!

My suggestions from my earlier post, as it turns out, are rated for 5-7 year olds.

A real favorite in our family was “The Monster at the End of this Book” starring Grover. For quite a while, I had to read it EVERY night.

Happy reading!

Thanks! Google was going to be my next source. I was hoping for some suggestions from some who had done this.


She's very active, but still three. I am thinking she will need some calming time at bedtime while she's here and staying in a different room.

If you're so inclined....
 
From the Bible-based angle....by Buck Denver, "What's in the Bible?"...are the books "God Made____" me, or, ___Night and Day, ___Animals" and so on. Berenstain Bear Series are nice too

Books for a 3 year old
 
My friend is an independent rep for Usborne books- she's a stay at home mom with a 2 year old and a 4 year old and there are hundreds of age appropriate books available. Google Usborne books...you'll find many to choose from. Her email is

Good for you for wanting to read to your child - it is truly one of the best things a parent can do. Start the tradition now and continue it well past the time they can read on their own, because at older ages you can share books that are too cumbersome for their reading abilities, but the content is meaningful to them. If you don’t mind the suggestion: Please visit your local library. That way, you have access to thousands of books and you can check them out, learn what your child likes to read. Make a weekly trip to the library, check out lots of books, and enjoy! The children’s librarian will be helpful for finding age-appropriate material. While there, check out the programs for children. The local libraries are a wealth of information. As time goes on, you will learn your child’s favorite types of books and you can give the gift of books as treats for all kinds of occasions. I get so excited about this topic because now that my children are grown, I remember our reading times together as the best of times. And they’ve told me they do, too. You will bring up a reader if you read to your child now, and reading opens up the whole world to all of us. Have fun!
