Reading books is one of the best way that helped expanded our son’s vocabulary. My husband and I would love to instill the love of books to our toddler boy. One of our home projects currently is to create a mini library at home. We collected books since he was a baby, and would love to organize them in shelves for easy access. My sweet pea is now 2 1/2 years old and the list includes the books that he is currently loving. These books gathered good customer reviewes and are recommended by other mom bloggers as well. Here are our top 10 most favorite books that are not only entertaining for my little boy but is also great in reiterating ABCs, numbers, colors and shapes.

1. Little Blue Truck Leads The Way

My son keeps on reaching out for this book every night. He already memorized the sequence of the story. He learned a new phrase from this book “the limousine is broken”.

2. Baby Happy Baby Sad

This is a really simple and wonderful book! We both love this book! Great way to learn emotions. Definitely very entertaining.

3. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

This is a classic book that your kids will absolutlety adore! And there is also a great STEAM activity from another blogger and teacher Jamie Hand.

4. TouchThinkLearn: Shapes

Although this book doesn’t have a lot of customer reviews, the author definitely gave a modern touch that we love. And this is one of the best books that teach shapes.

5. Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Another classic favorite book is Brown Bear Brown Bear, WHat Do You See from Bill Martin and Eric Carle.  Two of the best authors of children books. You will not be dissapointed. You can teach colors and animals to your kids.

6. Press Here

I was a little bit skeptical about this book in the beginning because the paper is so thin and I am worried that my boy will rip the book apart. But I am so wrong. He adores this book and kept reaching out for this as well before sleeping.

7. Where is Baby’s Belly Button

Another favorite from my son. If I gave him  several books to choose from, he will definitely grab this one! This is a really fun peek-a-boo book that teaches body parts.

8. Poke-A-Dot, What’s Your Favorite Color?

My son lost his interest on reading books because we travelled a lot last year.  He got used to using a cellphone while we were flying. This book is the #1 book that brought back his love of reading. This interactive book is worth every cent.

9. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Another classic book from Eric Carle is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Jamie Hand has another wonderful STEAM activity for this book.

This last book Ready To Go! Toilet Time is definitely one of the best books to teach kids about potty training. It includes some reward stickers and posters! A must buy for making potty training fun! There is also another version of the book for girls.

And that rounds up our top ten favorite books for 2 years old.

Till next time,
