Let’s face it, moms. We complain that our toddler wants to hear the same book over and over and over. But that’s usually because it’s a book we can’t stand. But we do the same thing! We have a few books we prefer to read. At least, I know I do! I have a few favorite board books that I don’t mind reading over and over again.
Here are the books I choose to read when it’s Mama’s turn to pick!
Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox is just a delightfully sweet book to read with little ones. I also love the illustrations which feature babies from around the world.
All of Baby Nose to Toes by Victoria Adler is one of my favorites. I can’t help reading the rhyming text in a sing-song. And every time the book asks, “Who loves baby’s (eyes/nose/toes/etc.),” it’s fun to answer, “Me, I do!”
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown–This is just an all-time favorite of mine that I somehow never tire of. I’m sure you know and love this classic too. It’s nice to have a board book version so your babies won’t bend the pages. (If your child can’t get enough of it, the Audible version is just $.87)
The Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson is one that I can practically read with my eyes shut! My kids have all enjoyed this rhyming and surprising book.
Sandra Boynton is a board book master, and there are a few of hers that I just don’t get tired of for whatever reason. They are sweet, fun, humorous, and engaging: Are You a Cow?, Moo, Baa, La, La, La, But Not the Hippopotamus, and Hippos Go Berserk!
What are your favorite board books to read over and over again? (I could use some new ones!)
