Summer Reading List :: Toddler Edition

Earlier this week, I shared my summer reading list. I''m happy to report that I've been able to check one of those books off my list: Promise to Keep, which puts me having read 5 books this year. Pick it up but I'm warning you, you will cry. Now that I've found my reading groove again, I've decided to set reading goals for Connor this summer too. He loves to read/be read to and looks forward to our weekly visits to the library to pick out new books.

On Wednesday when we visited, the library was kicking off it's summer reading program. We were given our reading tracker along with a list of suggested books for Connor. Our librarian also challenged us to share our reading challenge with friends by giving them a challenge ourselves. Connor and I were excited at the idea of reading with friends. We raced home and picked a handful of friends and sent each of them a reading themed piece of snail mail.  Once I know everyone has received theirs, I'll share our packages on IG.

For those of you curious as to what books our local branch is recommending for a preschooler, here is Connor's list based off of their suggestions. I would love to read 15 new books this Summer in addition to our favorites.

LMNO Peas by Keith Barker
Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton
Llama, Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney
Planting a Rainbow by Lois Elhert
Chicken said "Cluck!" by Judyann Ackerman Grant
My Heart is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall
Shape by Shape by Suse MacDonald
Sheep on a Ship by Nancy Shaw
Bunny Money by Rosemary Wells
The Napping House by Audrey Wood
I Stink! by Kate McMullan

(reading list was updated as of 7/9)

What are some of your children's favorite books? We have a pretty good collection of books already but as Connor grows, I'll need to trade out "baby" books for "big boy" options.

Happy Friday friends!
