What are the best reading toys for a preschooler?

Are any of them actually affordable?

  • i read to my DS when he slept as well. Even if you think they aren't paying attention they are. Although annoying at times we kept it up. My DS, 2 1/2, now sits in his bed and reads for 45 min before bed and falls asleep with one on his face...lol All stories are good but books that are at her level are important because she can look at the pictures and make connections. You can talk about what she sees in the pictures. What colors they are wearing, if they are animals the sounds they make etc. I was a 1st Gr Teacher and these are all things that are taught in the concepts about print in K.

  • books. There are lots of different kinds. My DD loves the ones with pop ups or games in them.

  • my girls love the story books that you put in and the machine reads them the story. The new one out called tag is good.

    She was unable to focus then. She slept nearly all day as a newborn. She loves bed time stories now (though we're not reading "typical" bed time stories. I'm reading Celia Rees to her and my husband is reading Clive Barker.)

  • Have you thought about the Tag or Tag Jr.?? My dd has the Tag. I think she likes to be able to "read" by herself sometimes. Makes her feel grown up! lol
