1,000 Books Before Kindergarten – Part 5

My son and I had another fun month of reading books together.  He has his favorite books that he loves for me to read to him over and over.  It is so much fun to see how excited he gets when he hears a book he likes.  Here are some of his favorites:

Baby beep! beep! – a lift-the-flap book to discover different vehicles.

Brush, Brush, Brush - a book about brushing and caring for your teeth.

My Truck is Stuck - a book about different vehicles trying to pull out a truck that is stuck.

Caillou, It’s Me - a lift-the-flap book that discovers different parts of the body.

Each of his favorite books has rhyming or flaps that reveal a surprise underneath.  Toddlers like books they can touch and books that rhyme.  By reading his favorite stories over and over, he gets familiar with the book and knows what is going to happen next.    (He already tells me when I skip a page).
