Toddlers have an innate sense of the ridiculous, and enjoy repetition, word play, and bold pictures. We’ve rounded up 36 both recent and tried-and-true books that your toddler will adore!
Toddlers are active, curious, busy little people, intensely engaged in learning about the world around them. Books help them make sense of what they see, hear, think, and feel. Still, there’s a vast gap between a one-year-old who’s just started to speak in short sentences, and a three-year-old who can recite the alphabet—possibly backwards. That means that the best books for this diverse group meet them where they are, but also encourage them to stretch their abilities, staying relevant as kids grow.
