Our Top 25 Read-Aloud Picture Books Part 4

This will be the last part of this very long post.  Hope that you’ve found some old favorites and , hopefully, some new ones.  Would love to hear which ones you like the most.  To review all of them at once, go to Nourished and Nurtured for the complete list.


Picture Books the Very Young Will Love (and my older kids still like them, too)

Babybug – Back when my eldest was an infant, she received a subscription to Babybug magazine for a few years. Here we are 7 years later, and both of my kids still love to read Babybug.  It is filled with lovely stories, poems, and pictures. These magazines are printed on very thick paper, so they don’t tear easily. We are still cherishing ours from 2007-2011!


 A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle – Hermit crab has outgrown his shell and must find a new one. As he settles in, many other creatures from the ocean adorn his new shell. My kids love to watch hermit crab make his way in his new home.


Because a Little Bug Went Ka-Choo! by Rosetta Stone – This book has a wonderful cadence and rhyme that makes it quite fun to read. My kids love to see all the things that could happen because… just because… a little bug went Ka-Choo!


Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton – I have such fond memories of both of my kids giggling over and over from my lap while I read them this book when they were toddlers. It is simple and funny. It is good for teaching color recognition too.


Cookie’s Week by Cindy Ward This short, simple book tells about Cookie the mischievous cat, and the trouble he gets into each day of the week. Beginning in toddlerhood and still to this day, both of my kids love reading Cookie’s Week.

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey – This is the story of Sal and her mother, who get mixed up with bears while picking blueberries to can for the winter.  As toddlers, both of my kids requested to hear this book night after night. Now as a preschooler and a 2nd grader, they still like to hear about Sal periodically.

Brush Mona Lisa’s Hair by Julie Appel and Amy Guglielmo – This book, and the others in the same series, is a great child’s introduction to art.  This books shows masterpieces of art, along with something tactile added to each page. Kids can touch Mona Lisa’s hair, touch a lacy collar in another picture, and blow on feathers to make the angels fly.  My kids still like to read and play along with this book.

Out and About by Shirley Hughes – This collection of poems and illustrations takes us through all four seasons of the year. It has a way of making me long for each and every season. My kids love to see what the kids do in each season.
