  • You can't go wrong with Dr Seuss. Small kids love the sing song rhymes of it.

  • My daughter loves the EyeLike books.. I found a link on Amazon that gives you a good idea of what they are.. lots of vibrant colors and not so common words for them to learn.

  • Curious George. My dd loves Curious George.

    Also, many may not have seen or heard of them, but they were written by Stephen Cosgrove and illustrated by Robin James. The series is called by the name of one of the stories, Serendipity. They have georgeous illustrations and fun stories and each one tells a moral.

    Here is the link to his site:

  • I too am a huge fan of The Monster at the End of this Book. :-), any Dr. Seuss, Where the Wild Things are, and any Shel Silverstein.

  • Junie B. Jones. If they're not old enough to know about proper grammar then you should read them the stories and just change the wording so it's proper. ( I have a big pet peeve about books that have wrong grammer and poor spelling that are written for kids. It makes them confused and screws up the development in my opinion) The books are SO funny and cute!!!
